  1. Pretty thorough listing of Nixon performances, although there is one glaring omission, although it's understandable, since it's not available on home video - Rip Torn's portrayal of Nixon in the miniseries BLIND AMBITION, based on the book by John Dean.

    1. Thanks for the heads up on that! I'd love to see RIP rip into NIXON!
