Summary
Best of Enemies is a behind the scenes account of the explosive 1968 televised debates between the liberal Gore Vidal and the conservative William F. Buckley Jr and their rancorous disagreements about politics, God and sex. Masterfully directed by Morgan Neville and Robert Gordon Best of Enemies vividly portrays the two sides of politics that fought to claim America's future, through the vicious rivalry of two of the period's most gifted orators. In the summer of 1968 television news changed forever. Dead last in the ratings, ABC USA hired two towering public intellectuals to debate each other during the Democratic and Republican national conventions. William F. Buckley Jr was a leading light of the new conservative movement, a Democrat and cousin to Jackie Onassis. Gore Vidal was a leftist novelist and polemicist. Armed with deep-seated distrust and enmity, Vidal and Buckle believed each other's political ideologies were dangerous for America. Like rounds in a heavyweight battle, they pummelled out policy and personal insult--their explosive exchanges devolving into vitriolic name-calling. Live and unscripted, they kept viewers riveted
