Spacecraft America - Documentary available on DVD - *******www.mlfilms****/ - Pre-dating the Watergate Scandal, this prophetic satire uses commercials and TV coverage of Nixon's second inauguration to humorously demonstrate the absurdity of American culture and politics. Spacecraft America demonstrates that television new coverage and advertising are directing American culture and fogging the fine distinction between commercial exploitation of fantasies and political reality. Winner of the Silver Award Atlanta International Film Festival. Metacafe clip Authorized by MLF - mlfilms - Michael Lawrence Films

Wow..I was first surprised to see that a President who was elected in 1928 was still alive to be on TV! While going through some old kinescopes, I came upon this clip of former President Herbert Hoover giving a speech on the opening day of the Republican National Convention held at the International Ampitheater in Chicago, IL. This was the year that Richard Nixon and Henry Cabot Lodge were nominated to run against John Kennedy & Lyndon Johnson. (As you know, Nixon lost but later won along with VP Spiro Agnew.) Anyway, here is a clip of 85 year old Hoover's speech to the convention on July 25, 1960. UPDATE: See my recent updates on both the Democratic & Republican National Conventions of 1960.

April 17, 1973 White House Telephone Part of a conversation with President Richard Nixon and his then-National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger. This conversation took place around midnight. In it, Nixon emotionally discusses the growing Watergate scandal and the possibility of having to fire his Chief of Staff H. R. (Bob) Haldeman. He also says that he has already contemplated resigning himself in favor of his Vice President Spiro Agnew (this was more than a year and three months before he actually did resign). Earlier that night, Nixon made his first public pronouncement on Watergate, and John Dean had just begun to cooperate with investigators.

The clip debbie reynolds concert from Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (1998) with Johnny Depp, Benicio Del Toro Okay, bye. We'll see you later. This was Bob Hope's turf. ~ Strangers in the night ~ Frank Sinatra's. ~ Exchanging glances ~ Spiro Agnew's. The place fairly reeked of high-grade Formica and plastic palm trees. Clearly a high-class refuge for big spenders. It's started. Is she on stage? She is. Sold out. Sorry, sir. Full house. I'm sorry, sir. We drove all the way from L.A. for this show. There are no seats left at any price. Fuck seats! We're friends with Debbie. I used to romp with her. Mm-hmm. Are you prepared to go to court? Well, that depends. I wanna talk to you for a second. Your attitude constitutes a breach of faith. Uh, hi. In Nevada, that's illegal. What's your name? My name? Tony Pizzacata. Tony Pizzacata. What, may I ask, is your name, sir? It's on my driver's license. I think we might be able to squeeze you in, sir. Ohh! Thank you kindly. You'll have to stand in the back. After a lot of bad noise he let us in for nothing... provided we would stand quietly in the back and not smoke. Ladies and gentlemen... the Desert Inn is proud to present the one, the only... the incomparable Miss Debbie Reynolds! ~ Ooh, ooh-ooh ~ Good evening, ladies and gentlemen! It's wonderful to be here with you fabulous people! Whoa! Let's rock and roll! ~ Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band ~ What the hell's going on? Get'em out! Come on, get outta here! Aah! Get'em out. ~ Ooooh, ooooh ~ Out. Get'em out! ~ Ooooh, ahhhh ~
