Item Description
With cameos from Dick Cavett, Edwin Newman and Wayne Newton,
"Elvis Meets Nixon" is an hysterical look into the famous
photograph taken in December, 1970. The film primarily focuses on
Elvis's real-life trek to the White House where he discovers just
how out-of-sync he is with American culture of the late 60s. Along
the way, Elvis holds up a donut shop, badmouths some hippies,
shoots a few televisions and eats lots of airplane food. Through it
all, President Nixon ponders the fact that the children of America
hate him while he considers adding the Beatles to his infamous
enemies list. Bob Gunton as Nixon and Rick Peters as Elvis are
sensational as they inadvertantly create one of the greatest
"buddy" scenes in film history. Gunton, an established actor,
richly deserved awards for his show-stopping performance. Hilarious
and almost heartbreaking, this film truly taps into the future
plummets of both American icons. This is a DVD+R comes in a
Papersleeve & Ships in a Bubble-Mailer Envelope. Region Free
