WUSA movie scene

Paul Newman takes to the airwaves in WUSA.

Paul Newman (Hud), Joanne Woodward (The Three Faces of Eve), Anthony Perkins (Psycho) and Pat Hingle (Talledega Nights: The Ballad of Ricky Bobby) star in the 1970 drama WUSA.

The film concerns a jaded disc-jockey (Newman) who offers his services to WUSA, a conservative, hate-stirring station out of New Orleans. While struggling with his own apathy, the deejay begins spreading hateful messages perpetrated by the owner of the station (Hingle), which leads to some pretty ugly goings-on.

Directed by Stuart Rosenberg (Cool Hand Luke) and based on Robert Stone’s best-selling novel A Hall of Mirrors , WUSA also stars Laurence Harvey (1962′s The Manchurian Candidate), Don Gordon (Bullitt), Cloris Leachman (The Women), Moses Gunn (The Neverending Story) and Wayne Rogers (TV’s M*A*S*H).

WUSA was released by on DVD by Olive back in 2010. Check out our review here.
