'Mike Wallace Is Here' A Little Longer

Aug 27, 2019

Mike Wallace Is Here a little longer. Until Thursday, to be exact.

The new documentary about 60 Minutes correspondent Mike Wallace has been held over through Thursday, Aug. 29 by Cincinnati World Cinema at The Garfield theater, 719 Race St., downtown.

Mike Wallace Is Here profiles the iconic CBS newsman through his interviews with Johnny Carson, Oprah Winfrey, Donald Trump, John Ehrlichman, Leona Helmsley, Barbra Streisand, Larry King, Ayatollah Khomeini, Bette Davis, President John F. Kennedy and others. The words "Mike Wallace is here" could strike fear in newsmakers and controversial people because of Wallace's relentless questioning.

Wallace – born Myron Leon Wallace in 1918 – died in 2012 at age 93. He was one of the original correspondents for 60 Minutes in 1968, and appeared on the show for 40 years, retiring in 2008.

Before 60 Minutes, Wallace was an actor in the 1950s, and worked as a TV announcer, host and game show panelist. Once when between jobs, he applied for a on-air position at WKRC-AM in the late 1950s.

Mike Wallace Is Here screenings are at 7 p.m. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance; $15 at the door.
