Richard Nixon enflamed the left by nominating him Secretary of the Interior...and stunned the nation by firing him over his opposition to Vietnam. Committed industrialist, responsible environmentalist, two-time governor of Alaska Walter J. Hickel confounded all attempts to pigeonhole him by his allies as well as his foes. His life, times, and governing philosophies are compellingly recounted in this documentary portrait. 57 min. Soundtrack: English.
