Washington – Behind Closed Doors

MAMMOTH NIXON rehashing, with JASON ROBARDS as the crooked nutter Richard Monckton (names changed for legal purposes) and ROBERT VAUGHN the one pulling the strings, planting the mikes and cleaning up the crap. Ace teleprinter place and time titles.

    Made by ABC, but shown by the BBC, who weirdly a few years later then showed CBS’ Blind Ambition, another dramatisation of the same events using the original names, based on the memoirs of John Dean, with Martin Sheen as Dean, Rip Torn as Nixon, William Daniels as Liddy, and featuring Graham Jarvis as John Ehrlichmann, the writer of Washington Behind Closed Doors.

      Can’t quite see the usually effete William Daniels (the voice of KITT) as G. Gordon Liddy, who was quite the bad-ass.
