Good Acting and a Must-See Film, Even If Some Biographical Facts Distorted
21 October 2000 | by (Texas, USA) – See all my reviews

This is the film story which was to come from the book, ' Autobiography of G.Gordon Liddy', "Will". Mr. Liddy was the technical advisor at the beginning of this Robert Conrad film when a writers' or actors' strike occurred. The strike delayed the filming schedule, which overlapped into Mr. Liddy's earlier prearranged schedule of having to be out of the country. Mr. Liddy had to honor his other appointment and leave. After the strike, a new director was assigned to the project, who evidentially hated the film. He began distorting the facts from the book. Robert Conrad tried to reason that this was a person's life, not fiction, and that they needed to stick to the facts.

If you read the book first, the string of events will not confuse you. The first factual distortion is the opening scene where the young Liddy is terrified of the dirigible (blimp). Liddy is portrayed as being 9-10 years of age when actually, this event occurred when he was a toddler. Last factual distortion...The last scene in the prison yard, where Mr. Liddy rides the forklift never occurred.

Mr. Robert Conrad does a SUPERB JOB of capturing the Liddy essence! Bravo! This usually underrated actor needs to appear in more and more meaty roles to display his excellent acting abilities! He is not just another 'pretty face'!
