I saw this movie back in the day on VHS. I remember that I enjoyed it. I liked how they showed these political legends as real humans and remember the frank and sometimes crude language that was used. This was odd because most movies about these characters, at least at that time, glossed over them being real humans and seemed to want to portray them as nothing but their iconic public images.
Another movie kind of like this that would be a good companion piece, that is also not out on DVD is Executive Action with Burt Lancaster and Robert Ryan.
I am going strictly from memory and it was probably in the late 80's that I saw this but I remember it being a pretty interesting film.
