Storyline

From 1971 to 1973, Richard Nixon secretly recorded his private conversations in the White House. This revealing film chronicles the content of those tapes, which include Nixon's conversations on the war in Vietnam, the Pentagon Papers leak, his Supreme Court appointments, and more--while also exposing many of the 'blunt and candid' statements made by the President about women, people of color, Jews, and the media.

Trivia

Idiosyncratic goof: During a film montage previewing Nixon's trip to China in 1972, Air Force One is depicted as a VC-25, a variation of the Boeing 747-200B. The 747-200B airframe was not adopted for usage by the President until 1990. See more »

Description may be deceiving..
4 May 2020 | by kcv47811See all my reviews

Nixon in his own words. Maybe I was just excited that I thought I had found a documentary that wasn't just another Nixon hater special.. I was wrong. I'm not saying that the film is false info.. It's just that the tapes get old. Anytime he says something inappropriate, it's after something horrible had just happened. Nobody wants every conversation they've ever had, played for the entire world to hear.

This documentary is all Oval Office conversations.
