A new documentary reminds us of the Gipper's eerie transformation from B-movie actor to master of the political stage

This week, as part of the Ronald Reagan centennial, BBC Four screened the Eugene Jarecki documentary American Idol: Reagan, a film which was presented in a notably conciliatory, even celebratory spirit. (The BBC's iPlayer site also has available the 1954 movie Cattle Queen Of Montana starring Barbara Stanwyck and Ronald Reagan, the film visible on the movie-theatre marquee in Back to the Future.)

The film is watchable and interesting: it does not exactly shrink from criticism, identifying the damaging, long-term consequences of Reaganomics and the abysmal compromises of the Iran-Contra affair, but notably declines to discuss the support given to Saddam during the Iran-Iraq war, which ran roughly concurrent to the Reagan presidency.
