This compelling drama traces the activities of Nixon's final days in office as he and his aids try desperately to repair the damages and clear up all allegations charged. But due to congress' successful investigation which directly implicated Nixon in the cover-up, the fear of impeachment forces him to resign. On the night before his resignation, the fallen president asks a stunned Henry Kissinger, his secretary of state, to kneel down beside him and pray.

Worth a watch! - The Final Days review by RC

Spoiler Alert
20/04/2021

This is a US TV drama production from 1976 based on the book by the key Watergate Journalists of the time (Woodward and Bernstein). Unlike "All the Presidents Men" which center's on the Watergate investigation and exposure by the Washington Post, this drams focuses on the last days of President Nixon's presidency involving his key White House advisers and lawyers. As a drama it is really one for the keen students of Watergate history but it is a high value production. The time period covers the various twist and turns as Nixon seeks to evade criminal charges and possible impeachment. Special mention must go for Lane Smith who captures Nixon's mannerisms and speech patterns brilliantly. The drama received several awards at the Emmys. Well worth a watch if interested in Watergate as a historical subject.
