Watch: 10-Minute Vintage 'Pressure And The Press' Featurette Explores The Making Of 'All The President's Men'

We’re nearing the 40th anniversary of Alan J. Pakula’s iconic “All the President’s Men”—we’re now more than 40 years removed from the actual events that were depicted in the film—so let’s pour one out for the incomparable Gordon Willis and check out a short behind-the-scenes video from when the film was originally released.

Running about 10 minutes long, the short, titled “Pressure And The Press,” features interviews with not only Pakula, Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman themselves, but the real-life Woodward and Bernstein too. Topics covered include the origins of the film, the recounting of the journalists’ real life journey into why Deep Throat did what he did, and what the purpose of the great overheard shot in the Library of Congress was. Check out the video below, and revisit the movie soon too.
