From the release of Network, November 27, 1976, to the death of the star actor, Peter Finch, who played Howard Beale, was a span of 49 days.
He became the first actor to win a posthumous Academy Award, at the 49th Academy Awards.
From the release of the film to the awards on March 28, 1977, was 121 days later.
Keep in mind Network is 2:01 in length.
Keep in mind ‘Network’ released on the day leaving 34 days in the year.
It released on a date with 114 numerology, and Peter Finch died on January 14, or 1/14, like 114.
And notice the overlap with ‘Network’ and ‘murder’.
