Washington: Behind Closed Doors (1977)
This barely disguised critique of the Nixon administration (based on a book by Nixon staffer John Ehrlichman) stars Jason Robards as (fictitious) U.S. President Richard Monckton, a leader hoping to leave his mark on world history. Containing parallels to the Vietnam War, Nixon's engagement with China, and Watergate, the six-part miniseries reveals how Monckton indeed carves out a unique legacy--just not the one he intended. All-star supporting cast includes Cliff Robertson, Stefanie Powers, Robert Vaughn, and John Houseman. 9 hrs. on three discs. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo; Subtitles: English (SDH).
