December 01, 2008 C-SPAN

Director Ron Howard and Screenwriter Peter Morgan talked about their new movie, Frost/Nixon, which looks at the 1977 televised interview between David Frost and President Richard Nixon. The movie gives us a glimpse into the mind of the former Commander in Chief about the Watergate scandal, which lead to his resignation. Mr. Howard and Mr. Morgan responded to telephone calls and electronic mail. The trailer and a clip of the film were shown as well as a portion of a 1992 C-SPAN Booknotes interview with President Nixon.
