The 1994 film, "Quiz Show", was a box office bust in sales but garnered much critical acclaim. Directed by Robert Redford, it was a historical film about the conspiracy of rigging a show called "Twenty One" that was aired in the 1950's and the congressional trial of it's legitimacy. Although, the fraud of television shows would not lead to major catastrophe's to it's usual viewers, the movie did raise deep moral and ethical issues on an individual level from the players in the fraud. The well written movie garnered an Academy Award Nomination for the best picture that year.
