Did You Know?


Deputy Chief of Staff Michael Deaver states that the note President Reagan wrote while unable to speak, asking if anyone else had been injured in the assassination attempt on him, would become historically important because Reagan was the only president to survive being shot. Though not a sitting president at the time of the attack, former president and Bull Moose Party candidate Theodore Roosevelt was wounded by a gunshot on October 14, 1912. Like Reagan, Roosevelt was wounded on the left side of his chest, when a bullet struck him, passing through an eyeglasses case and a folded 50 page speech he was carrying. The bullet did not penetrate to his lung. Roosevelt continued with his scheduled speech and carried the bullet in his chest the rest of his life. See more »

The subject matter has captured attention...

...from so many quarters round the whole world especially in the UK and the USA. Fascinating insight into the process a team of doctors will often go through when addressing how to try to save a human being in a trauma. The leading 'protagonist', namely Ben Aaron the surgeon who performed the operation, comes across a such a thoroughly warm and kind human being. Very powerful CGI work and good, natural performances from the cast which is essential in this medium. Exceptionally well-documented and researched. The way the Operating-room scenes are inter-cut with those in the White House and at the news conferences is particularly good.
