The producers could not find any house in Montreal that looked like a "California modern" 1950s house, so they had to build the Reagan family's house on a set. The crew was always running into its many glass walls. See more »
Reagan and studio exec are shown walking through picturesque Universal Studios back lot sets late at night, only to enter a door to European building in which he will pose for publicity photos with a chimp for Bedtime for Bonzo. In reality such photos have been shot in photo gallery or sound stage nowhere near back lot and certainly not late at night.
What the movie showed was a walk through a stage set (not back lot) lit AS IF for night. It was not meant that the still shoot was taking place at night. See more »
I hate the fact that I had to wait for this movie to come out on DVD before I could see it. Why, because some idiots bullied CBS into pulling it. Shame on CBS for not airing this movie. This movie is a great dramatization of Ronald and Nancy Reagan. James Brolin is excellent as the 40th President and Judy Davis is terrific as Nancy Reagan. Those who criticize this movie haven't seen it and don't want to try to see the Reagans as flawed human beings. Yes, Reagan today is slowly dying but that doesn't make his political legacy questionable. The 1980s had its own problems just like we have today. I know, I grew up in the 1980s. What worked back then would not work today. I think that people should see this movie and decide for themselves.
