Synopsis by Jason Buchanan

Academy Award-winner Anthony Hopkins narrates this documentary exploring the incredible life of fearless publisher Hank Greenspan, who handled public relations for Bugsy Malone and proved a pivotal figure in the 1948 Arab-Israeli War in addition for daring to stand tall against Senator Joseph McCarthy at the height of the anti-Communist hysteria. Later, in the 1970s, Greenspan's name would become forever tied to the Watergate scandal thanks to an incident at the Las Vegas Sun that thrust the story into the headlines across the country.
