Morton Downey Jr. “distinguished” himself with an in-your-face television talk show that took on hot-button issues like the Tawana Brawley rape allegations, while giving his guests and audience a chance to act out in a base, Roman Colosseum fashion. It’s a dubious legacy that this absorbing doc examines with a heathenish affection. A number of guests will attend this screening, including Downey's former bodyguard and talk show host Richard Bey.
