Sock It to Who?

This is an extremely well conceived and produced satire of Richard Nixon which uses his entire history -- including a lot of newsreel footage -- and combines it with a well conceived "interior" story to indicate his essential cluelessness. Some sizable talent shows up in the effort, including Vivian Blaine, Mickey Rooney as an "It's a Wonderful Life" sort of angel, John Carradine and Paul Ford as mad scientists who change Nixon's character, and Nixon impersonator Richard M. Dixon.

To me it looks as if the anger of the makers of this film took a few more swings of the slapstick than serve the picture. It drags towards the end and I feel that if five or ten minutes were cut from its length, it would be a better movie and a much more effective satire.
