A Classic!
13 August 2011 | by editor-102-580164See all my reviews

I saw this flick in 1973 at a movie house in Aix-en-Provence, France. We were a group of French and American students, all rolling on the floor and laughing hysterically.

It's a wonderfully funny and insightful film . You get to see the myth behind the man. The star ("Dixon") seemed to embody Nixon more than just physically.

But did I really see this movie? I've looked high and low to find it again. It's almost as if it was all a dream. Or maybe someone bought up all the prints and hid them along with the 18-and-a-half minutes of missing audio material. Hmmm...

Honestly, though, I wish I could find a copy somewhere...anywhere! Does anyone have a clue? Please!!
