ABSTRACT
The article presents accounts about the making of the cinematic tribute to Edward R. Murrow and the CBS news staff during television's first golden age in the 1950s. It was understood that the film would be in black and white, and use a lot of archival footage. Director George Clooney shot everything on long lenses with two cameras rolling at the same time. Among the major challenges he encountered were studio lighting that entailed twice the time and cost as colored shoots and unforgiving black-and-white print stock.
