Best of Enemies

Best of Enemies is a dazzling intellectual feast that was nominated for the Grand Jury Prize at Sundance and directed by Robert Gordon and Oscar winner Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom). William F. Buckley, the leader of the new conservative movement, and Gore Vidal, leftist novelist and polemicist, battle for the soul of America in a series of debates hosted by ABC during the 1968 Presidential Conventions. Live and unscripted, they kept viewers riveted. Ratings for ABC News skyrocketed. And a new era in public discourse was born.
