Honestly, this movie sounded really cheesy on paper but since I always had a weak spot for Robert Redford and Michelle Pfeiffer, I was still eager to check it out. Eventually, I thought it was actually not bad at all.

This is a telling of the Jessica Savitch story, the newswoman who, in the 1970's, became the "First Woman Anchor". Sally/Tally is taken under the wing of Warren in a Miami newsroom and becomes a news star on TV. Despite her love for Warren, she takes the big chance and moves on to Philadelphia, where he follows to rescue her faltering career at the cost of his own - as she rises he falls.

“Honestly, this movie sounded really cheesy on paper but since I always had a weak spot for Robert Redford and Michelle Pfeiffer, I was still eager to check it out. Eventually, I thought it was actually not bad at all. I mean, sure, it remains a rather sappy feature and you won't get much real journalistic work but both leads were really charismatic and they definitely had a great chemistry together. In fact, this story was actually based on the life of Jessica Savitch who was apparently a famed newscaster at the end of the 70's. As a result, you have some glimpse of some interesting insights of what this movie could have been but the producers apparently didn't trust this interesting material and drastically altered her story and added above all a really pedestrian love story.
