WUSA is a 1970 drama directed by Stuart Rosenberg. Robert Stone wrote its screenplay based on his award-winning novel A Hall of Mirrors. WUSA is set in New Orleans and features an appearance by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. Radio station WUSA hires drifter Rheinhardt (Paul Newman) as an announcer. For Rheinhardt, it's just a job and not something he pursues with genuine interest and optimism. On air, he says things he doesn't believe in order to promote the radio station's right-wing ideals. When his friend Geraldine (Joanne Woodward) and his neighbor Rainey (Anthony Perkins) question Rheinhardt's on-air speech, Rheinhardt finds it difficult to remain detached. When Rainey uncovers the station's ulterior motives, it is time for Rheinhardt to take a stand. Does this drifter have what it takes to put a stop to what appears to be a right-wing conspiracy? Could his careless show of support for the station have led him to actually care about something?
