Editorial Reviews

The complete televised interviews.

Synopsis:
This program, culled from the over 28 hours of interview footage between Sir David Frost and U.S. President Richard M. Nixon, was originally broadcast in May of 1977. Never before, nor since, has a U.S. President been so candid on camera. Even more intriguing is the fact that Nixon agreed to appear on camera with no pre-interview preparation or screening of questions.
Now the subject of a Major Motion Picture directed by Ron Howard, Frost/Nixon: The Complete Interviews is a riveting historic time capsule. Topics include the following:
Watergate,
Nixon And The World (Soviet Union, China)
War At Home And Abroad (Vietnam, Nixon s War at Home)
The Final Days (Resignation of Agnew, Personal Taxes, Nixon s Pardon)
The Last Roundup (18 ½ minute gap, Supreme Court, Kissinger, John Mitchell).


This program also contains new footage with Sir David Frost shot in 2007 discussing the historic impact of the interviews along with his reactions of their famous encounter. Frost also discusses his views on Peter Morgan s interpretation and screenplay adaptation of this historical event.

Customer Reviews

I was like, "Is he really that wimpy?"
Shaz
I was troubled by his apparent taking and giving too much power: seems that he and Kissinger executed plans without full participation of his staff and Congress.

The COMPLETE INTERVIEWS are 28 hours long.

If you thought you saw it all with the Watergate interview that has been available on DVD for awhile, think again! The revelations in the Vietnam section of the Complete Frost/Nixon Interviews are even more shocking and candid. Watch as Nixon explains to Frost that when a President orders something illegal, say a break in, it isn't illegal. The China/USSR Interview is fascinating as well, and surprisingly funny, as Nixon delivers some Chinese jokes and actually kids Frost about "forgetting the microphones are on in the Oval Office." The Final Days and the Last Round Up are historic, too. Every President should sit down with someone like Frost after leaving office to leave us these in depth, thought provoking insights.

The recent success of the play "Frost/Nixon" on Broadway, with its Tony-winning performance by Frank Langella, has revived interest in its dramatic source: the exclusive interviews that a talk-show host then widely regarded as a lightweight scored with the former President of the United States, three years after his exit from office under a cloud of political scandal.

David Frost's interviews with ex-President of the United States Richard M. Nixon caused great excitement at the time of their first airing in 1977. This DVD makes available the most interesting of the segments, in which Frost confronts Nixon about his involvement in the Watergate scandal which had forced his resignation from the Presidency. Alternately ingratiating and truculent, Nixon vehemently denies that he committed any illegal act, even in the face of Frost's verbatim readings from the transcripts of the White House tapes that certainly suggest that the President condoned obstruction of justice, and payments of hush money to the perpetrators of the break-in to the Democratic Party's national headquarters.

Though the haggling over legalistic issues and exact meaning of words and phrases gets a bit tiresome early on, the later payoff is more than ample compensation, as Frost draws wrenching accounts from Nixon about firing his trusted aides, Haldeman and Ehrlichman, and, in the climactic last portion, elicits from the former President the admission that he "let the American people down." Seen in the light of the continued hubris of the present administration in the face of what to many are much greater transgressions, Nixon's contrition, veiled as it is, is extraordinary. This DVD brings back a fascinating chapter in American history. Framing interviews with Sir David Frost, reminiscing about the circumstances under which the interviews were arranged and executed, are a worthy bonus.

Too many of these reviews are for the 88 minute DVD which contains only the one session containing Watergate as the subject. Perhaps Amazon ought to transfer these over to be a part of that single DVD that they also sell.

This 2 disc set of DVDs covers all five of the broadcast interviews covering a full 400 minutes.

Even Amazon's own description at the top of the page mistakes the two DVDs as if they were interchangeable.

The last non-telegenic President has more closeups than Paul Newman in Hud.
This is a treat for Nixonphiles and for historians. And for those who really want to get into mix extra deep, there's plently here to impress: Nixon, the President, the man who was such an easy target for comics, for writers, for artists, speaks man to man and eyeball to eyebll to David Frost, who at times, has to go back over his notes with nervous hands.
I learned more about Watergate, Chile, Haldemann, Ehrlichmann, and the rest, right here, than in all the History made simple books I've scanned.
Particularly affecting is Nixon's sincerity as he expresses disappointment and depair over the lack of understanding and appreciation of his efforts to bring Peace in Vietnam and elsewhere; yes, his "Vietnamization" plan did work - but the bombing continued...and we invaded Cambodia, and this eventually brought war to that country!
On that point Frost will not back down, also on the 18.5 minute tape gap: as it occurred at the very beginning (as I recall) of the "cover-up" era, it's very hard to believe that some serious orchestrations weren't contained there.
I was troubled by his apparent taking and giving too much power: seems that he and Kissinger executed plans without full participation of his staff and Congress. (Not my area of expertise). Also troubling was his over-sympathy for John Mitchell - a big admission by Nixon, with regard to that working relationship, is contained here - statements strong enough to make a movie bigger than Ron Howard's!
Another tricky (sorry...

I'm not buying it till someone fixes the description.

Either it is complete, or it is not. 28 hours of footage works out to more than 400 minutes, which is only about 6.5 hours. And 1,680 minutes of interviews is a hell of a lot more than 88 minutes which is what is advertised here AND on the 1-disc edition. So is this just what was televised? An edit of that?

Obviously this is MORE complete, but I don't think it is COMPLETE, and I know it has a horrible product description, at the very least, mistakenly attached to two different DVD packages.

88 minutes?
Exactly. I thought that was what I had ordered. I saw David Frost on a TV show & I thought he said they were releasing the tapes in their entirety. That's what I expected! Just received this 88 minute dvd and I am totally disappointed.
