Some interesting information about the film is here...

Production

In September 2005, Clooney explained his interest in the story to an audience at the New York Film Festival: "I thought it was a good time to raise the idea of using fear to stifle political debate."[2]
Having majored in journalism in college, Clooney was well-versed in the subject matter. His father, Nick Clooney, was a television journalist for many years, appearing as an anchorman in Cincinnati, Ohio, Salt Lake City, Utah, Los Angeles, California, and Buffalo, New York. The elder Clooney also ran for congress in 2004.

George Clooney was paid $1 each for writing, directing, and acting in Good Night, and Good Luck., which cost $7.5 million to make. Due to an injury he received on the set of Syriana a few months earlier, Clooney couldn't pass the tests to be insured.
He then mortgaged his own house in Los Angeles in order to make the film.[3] Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and former eBay president Jeff Skoll invested money in the project as executive producers. The film ultimately grossed more than $54m worldwide.[4]
The CBS offices and studios seen in the movie were all sets on a soundstage. To accomplish a pair of scenes showing characters going up an elevator, different "floors" of the building were laid out on the same level. The "elevator" was actually built on a large turntable at the intersection of the two floor sets, and rotated once the doors were closed. When the doors reopened, the actors appeared to be in a different location. In doing so, the movie exercised a bit of dramatic license--the CBS executive offices at the time were located at 485 Madison Avenue.[5]

CBS News was located in an office building just north of Grand Central Terminal (demolished and now the site of the Met Life Building);[6] and the See It Now studio was located in Grand Central Terminal itself, above the waiting room.[7] For dramatic effect, all three areas were depicted as being in the same building.

Clooney and producer Grant Heslov decided to use only archival footage of Joseph McCarthy in his depiction. As all of that footage was black-and-white, that determined the color scheme of the film.[8] A young Robert Kennedy is also shown in the movie during McCarthy's hearing sessions. He was then a staff member on the Senate subcommittee chaired by McCarthy.

Wow! Thanks Joanna. Didn't know about the details for what I think might be my favorite George movie. And, here in the US, it came out at a time when it was sorely needed.

The fact he did it for $3 because he couldn't be insured and that Cuban invested in it shocked me. Great post Joanna!

Hence the "homage avatar" Lol

thanks Joanna! Great info. I have never seen it--never been on cable. I do remember when it came out (before I followed him) I wanted to see it because it seemed so interesting. Love to learn the backstory on stuff.

Hi ho, hi ho, it's off to Clooney I go!

A wonderful, wonderful film of journalism and reporting at its finest.

Ed Murrow was an amazing and highly principled man (despite his passionate dalliance with Pamela Churchill during WW11 in Paris).

Knowing that backstory now, Jo, I have even more respect for His Nibs.

And ps on the trivia side, Mark Cuban is a huge friend of one Stacy Keibler. Wheels within wheels........

This is one if my favourite Clooney films....I love it.
David Strathairn was brilliant and was robbed of an Oscar.
George's direction was spot on in this film IMO.
It's film that will become a classic I believe.
