Okay, I'm gonna shut up in just a moment, because while it takes a heckuva lot to render me speechless, this has just about done it.

Let's just first make sure that everyone actually still knows who/what Deep Throat is/was. A show of hands? You can put your hand down, Woodward; we know you know. And you too, Bernstein. Though I guess it's nice to know that you guys haven't forgotten. I mean, after all, the guy gave you two careers.

But . . . but . . . but . . .

Just to be clear, there are no live links in the artwork above or below; these are just copies of the graphics. And frankly, if I could give you links, I'm not sure I would. And no, this is not a paid or any other kind of promotion. What it is is something that if you want to know more about it or (heaven help us) do anything about it, that's all on you. And no, this is not made up. Well, somebody made it up, but it wasn't me. This Joshua Rosenblum person seems to have his fingerprints all over it.

Okay, I'm done. Let's get back to it. Sheesh!

I KNOW I PROMISED TO SHUT UP (AND I DID PRETTY
WELL, DIDN'T I?), BUT JUST ONE FINAL THOUGHT

Goodness knows, the Watergate story didn't lack for bizarre elements, but this may be the bizarrest of all, this final episode of Deep Throat emerging as a superannuated chorus boy.

B4INREMOTE-aHR0cHM6Ly8xLmJwLmJsb2dzcG90LmNvbS8tSTBxTF8xVWE1S2svV0ctS2Q2NDM3T0kvQUFBQUFBQUFqd28vcWpuS2xHb2cyTnMwTDFIN0hPUTlUWVNsN2RYdnVtMHlBQ0xjQi9zMTYwMC9wcmVzaWRlbnQlMjUyN3MtbWVuLXJldmlzaXRlZC0yMTAuanBn

So here's my thought: In 2013 Robert Redford's Sundance Productions produced an hour-and-a-half documentary follow-up to the Redford- and Dustin Hoffman-starring 1976 film version of All the President's Men (directed by Alan J. Pakula, with a script by William Goldman based on the Woodward-Bernstein book chronicling their Watergate adventure). “All the President's Men” Revisited, which won an Emmy documentary nomination, featured interviews with many of the actual players in the saga, and even included the disclosure of the identity of Deep Throat. I know it's a little unorthodox, but it's a documentary, after all, and don't you think it needs a brief update to incorporate this bizarre final episode?

One final final thought: I see there's a temptingly priced 2013 two-disc Blu-ray special edition of All the President's Men that includes “All the President's Men” Revisited and assorted other special features. I've added it to the top of my shopping list.

In the 2013 documentary “All the President's Men” Revisited, Dustin Hoffman and Robert Redford revisited their experience portraying, respectively, Washington Post metro-reporters-turned-Watergate-sleuths Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward in Alan J. Pakula's 1976 film.
