Absolutely Fabulous. Loggia's performance is more subtle than Clint Eastwood.
My how lucky I was to have taped this off of NBC television back in 1988. The real time for this mini-series is four hours and 23.5 minutes. My Beta recording was still perfect after 19 years. I am writing this at 4:12 AM. I could not leave my television set until the production ended. The casting of Ronny Cox and John Mahoney was also perfect. I enjoyed this movie even though I could see bits and pieces from movies as diverse as DAVE and THE DEAD ZONE. James Whitmore gives his role a very sincere and strong performance. Harry Hamlin who portrays a "scrungy" US Senator leaves you with the feeling that you should wash your hands if you had shaken his hand. Linda Kozlowski's performance throughout the film is very remarkable. Her final scene with Lance Guest as agent David Ross glues the viewer to the television. I hope that the producers re-release the mini-series in its entirety. I noticed that a VHS tape was available, but that only ran 115 minutes instead of the full 264 minutes.
