"Great stuff" —The Philadelphia Inquirer
The award-winning miniseries based on John Ehrlichman’s post-Watergate novel The Company
CIA director Bill Martin (Cliff Robertson, Charly, Falcon Crest) knows that an incoming president means a new direction for the country—and another set of eyes on the top secret Primula Report. Martin tries to build a rapport with his new boss, but President Richard Monckton (Jason Robards, All the President’s Men) is more interested in settling old scores and cleaning house with the help of the FBI.
Against the backdrop of a war in Southeast Asia and antiwar protests at home, this high-intensity political drama tells the story of an increasingly paranoid president, an administration under siege, and a reckless group of White House aides desperate to hold on to power. Featuring Stefanie Powers (Hart to Hart), Robert Vaughn (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.), and Andy Griffith (Matlock). Special appearance by John Houseman (The Paper Chase).
Stellar performances. Scary how well it mirrors our current political times!Published 3 months ago by Dee J.
Why does Monckton (Nixon) say "I'll take it" in the TV aired series, but here he just walks off without answering? Fantastic!Published 6 months ago by david
