Trivia

  • Frank Wills, the security guard who discovered the break-in at the Watergate complex, plays himself.
  • British director John Schlesinger declined an offer to direct as he felt the story of Watergate should be told by an American.
  • This was the first film Jimmy Carter watched during his presidential tenure.
  • The furious volley of typewriter keys striking paper in the opening scenes was created by layering the sounds of gunshots and whip-lashes over the actual sounds of a typewriter, accentuating the film's theme of words as weapons.
  • Permission to film at the Washington Post's newsroom was denied, so the production team recreated the facility at a Burbank studio in Los Angeles for a reported $450,000. The Post did, however, cooperate with the production's quest for authenticity by shipping several crates of actual newsroom refuse that included: unopened mail, government directories, Washington telephone directories, wire service copy, calendars, and even stickers from Ben Bradlee's secretary's desk.
