Nice to see Martin Scorsese in a significant part in Robert Redford’s excellent film Quiz Show (1994). Interesting casting elsewhere with two English actors playing father and son van Doren: Paul Schofield and Ralph Fiennes; and Hank Azaria, the voice of several Simpsons characters, including Moe, Apu and Chief Wiggum. Who would have thought that a film about a quiz show would be so engrossing? I didn’t even mind it being two hours long.
A young lawyer, Richard Goodwin, investigates a potentially fixed game show. Charles Van Doren, a big time show winner, is under Goodwin's investigation.
