In Montreal, producers built an exact copy of the exterior wall of Washington's Hilton Hotel in order to recreate the Reagan assassination attempt. See more »
In a scene set prior to their 1952 marriage, Ronald and Nancy watch the 1946 Rita Hayworth movie Gilda on TV. At that time, studios were not releasing major hits of recent years to television but were still re-releasing them to theaters using them as second half of double bills. See more »
Let me get right to the point: The problem with this movie is its utter lack of dramatic content. The story of Ronald and Nancy Reagan is so well known that this movie cannot offer any surprises. Further, the movie mocks Ronald and Nancy Reagan for being who they were - an actor and his devoted wife, and offers a simplistic portrayal of Mr. Reagan as being part Jed Clampett and part Gomer Pyle. What the movie glosses over is Ronald Reagan's career - college graduate, a Captain in the U. S. Army, the president of one of the most influential labor organizations in the entertainment industry, Governor of California and President of the United States. Pretty good resume for a small-town guy.
