Movie Info

Throughout Richard Nixon's presidency, three of his top White House aides obsessively documented their experiences with Super 8 home movie cameras. Young, idealistic and dedicated, they had no idea that a few years later they'd all be in prison. This unique and personal visual record, created by H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin, was seized by the FBI during the Watergate investigation, then filed away and forgotten for almost 40 years. OUR NIXON is an all-archival documentary presenting those home movies for the first time, along with other rare footage, creating an intimate and complex portrait of the Nixon presidency as never seen before.

The result is maudlin beyond belief, especially Nixon's farewell to the aides he's in the process of firing, but other moments simply register as shockingly out of touch.

We get to see film of daughter Tricia's wedding (her father is a surprisingly agile ballroom dancer) and other oddities.

Often plays like a mortifying companion to the Nixon-period sitcom "The Wonder Years."

There has never been an uninteresting angle on Richard Nixon - the man was too twisted - but Penny Lane's documentary sees him from several especially compelling new vantages.
