Trivia

Producers had set up filming in Toronto in 2003 when the SARS outbreak hit the town. They were forced to scratch nearly all their preparations and move filming to Montreal. They had to find new locations, hire a Montreal-based crew, and import English-speaking actors from Toronto and New York. The last-minute switch cost about $1.5 million, which they made up by cuts from the script and sets. See more »

Goofs

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 »

A Necessary Watch
11 June 2004 | by (Castro Valley, California) – See all my reviews

In the aftermath of Reagan's passing, the entire media is hurriedly engaged in rewriting the truth about this highly-flawed but interesting man. Virtually all of his significant errors, short-comings, and failures are being sanitized, and as his canonization completes itself the myths that remains will be a sham. Every citizen who values the truth should buy this DVD now and watch it before it disappears, just like the truths it reveals are disappearing.

In this remarkably factual production we learn about Reagan the actor, capable and pleasant. We also learn that he snitched off his pals to the HUAC. We learn that during the war he made movies in Culver City for the Army, and later had trouble finding work, finally winding up as GE's spokesman for Death Valley Days on Television, a medium he always held in contempt.

We watch his disdain for the IRS grow as his income skyrockets, and how it matures into a complete repudiation of the Federal Government. And as his resentment of the Federal Government grows, we witness how the shadowy rich seduce him into becoming their tax-cutting puppet, from the Governship of California through 2 terms in the White House.

Most importantly, we learn the truth about the most dysfunctional family ever to inhabit the White House, based largely on Reagan's shocking disinterest in his own flesh and blood.

Mainly, however, we learn the truth about Nancy. Let's just say that the truth as it is revealed here eclipses everything that you though you knew about this shrewd and manipulative woman.

This film contains the truths about Reagan that the Modern Cons don't want you to know. The source-work for this film is beyond reproach, with most of it coming from the writings of Reagans children first published years ago.

Production wise, it's great. James Brolin is uncanny in his capture of the Reagan personna, and he delivers a performance that is charitable and kind. I think it's his best ever. The other performances are equally as good.

Bottom Line: The truth is out there, and this is it.
