Plot Summary

This mockumentary follows the fictional career of Harvey Wallinger, ostensible chief aide and adviser to Richard Nixon, from Nixon's time as Eisenhower's vice-president through his loss in the 1960 election to John F. Kennedy to his own eventual election as U.S. president in 1968. Wallinger gives Nixon advice over the course of his career and, in numerous interviews, catalogs the attitudes, skills, and insight that made Nixon as great as Nixon thought he was.

Trivia By 1971, Woody Allen had sworn off doing television work but decided to do this special as a contribution to PBS. When this special was yanked before airing because of pressure from the Richard Nixon White House - it was a satire of then National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger - Allen cited the incident as an example of why he "sticks to movies." However, he later returned to television on three occasions: Don't Drink the Water (1994), Sounds from a Town I Love (2001) and Crisis in Six Scenes (2016). See more »
