C&L's Sat Nite Theater: Secret Honor (1984)

The downfall of Nixon in a one-man show you may have missed. (open thread)

Robert Altman's 90-minute fictional meditation on the unraveling of Richard Milhous Nixon. Tagline: "Anyone can be President."

It's a one-man show, so the film depends entirely on Philip Baker Hall's performance. And boy howdy, he delivers.

Enjoy! And it's an open thread below...
