Trivia

Per the title, "Hail to the Chief" is the official song that announces that the President of the United States has arrived. The song was originally known as "Lady of the Lake" and debuted in New York May 8, 1812. On July 4, 1828, the United States' Marine Band performed the song at a ceremony for the formal opening of the Chesapeake and Ohio Canal, which was attended by President John Quincy Adams. The song was first played to announce the arrival of the president at James K. Polk's inauguration on March 4, 1845. Today it is preceded by four ruffles and flourishes when played for the President.

Muldoon Is A Mess
23 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Set to handle the most important job the lowly 53rd Precinct has ever been given - driving the President of the United States from the airport to the UN - Muldoon, not Toody, cracks under the pressure.

Muldoon is overwhelmed at having "the head of the free world" in his car, he man he idolizes, that he faints when Captain Block tells him of the assignment.

A few test runs drives the Secret Service agent "Cordner" (Simon Oakland) crazy as Muldoon battles a variety of illnesses and then "remedies" for the assignment....all of which are hilarious. Poor Corder has to explains these crazy situations to his boss, who think he

  • not Muldon - is crazy. It's a mess.




I won't spoil the ending, but it wasn't what I expected....although I liked it.
