  1. Howard Beale

    Howard Beale is a fictional character from the film Network and the central character therein. He is played by Peter Finch, who won a posthumous Oscar for the role. In the film, Beale, the anchorman for the UBS Evening News, on the fictional UBS television network, struggles to accept the ramifications of the social ailments and depravity existing in the world he reports on; rather than give him the psychiatric assistance that some believe he needs, his producers use him as a tool for getting higher ratings. The image of Howard Beale, in a beige coat with his wet, gray hair plastered to his head, standing up during the middle of his newscast saying, "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!" ranks as one of the most memorable scenes in film history, the line made #19 on the American Film Institute's list of 100 great movie quotes. Beale's career as "The Mad Prophet of the Airwaves" is sparked by his half-joking offer, after receiving his two-weeks' notice, to kill himself on nationwide TV. He subsequently apologizes to his viewers, telling them he "ran out of bullshit."
