George Clooney and pal Les Moonves intend to re-do Network on CBS. One assumes they believe that Paddy Chayefsky‘s dialogue can be performed better than, say, what Bill Holden, Robert Duvall and Faye Dunaway did with it in this scene from Sidney Lumet‘s original 1976 feature. (It’s lifted from the new Network double-disc DVD, which has a very fine making-of doc and a great-looking transfer — like the film just came out of the lab.) I don’t care what Clooney and Moonves think — this can’t be improved upon, and if they want a challenge they should take an old movie that was only so-so and make it better.
