2 thoughts on “Historical Movies: Fact and Fiction

  1. I was considering going to the movie, instead I bought the book and downloaded the Watergate interview from iTunes. What with the cost of movie tickets over here it worked out well. Seems as if the movie is more about how the interview was won rather than the interview itself. While the book contains transcripts of the most important parts of the interview it spends a lot of time on the details surrounding the interview. The movie is based on a play, Frost gave up editorial rights when he gave permission for the book to be dramatised. Anyhoo I am up to my neck in reading about Nixon and the 1978 PRA, Interesting that Obama’s first excutive order was turning back Bush’s 2001 ex order that practically nullified the PRA.
