'All the President's Men' a best seller

WASHINGTON, June 5 (UPI) -- Since it was learned W. Mark Felt was Deep Throat, U.S. sales of the both the 1970s book and DVD of "All the President's Men" have skyrocketed.

The book by Washington Post reporters Carl Bernstein and Bob Woodward was a best seller in 1974, when it was originally published, and the movie that followed starring Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman was also a hit -- and they are again.

The book has been flying off Washington's booksellers' shelves for those who want to review how exactly Woodward was contacted by the second in command of the FBI during Watergate, or for those who want to know what all the fuss about Watergate was, reported the Fredericksburg (Va.) Free Lance-Star.

Amazon.com had the book version of "All the President's Men" in its top 10 selling books last week, but it has dropped to No. 42. However, the movie was ranked No. 8 in DVD sales, Sunday.
