Filmmaker Ron Howard on His New Film “Frost/Nixon”
Host: Amy Goodman
Academy Award-winning director Ron Howard’s new film is about the only American president who was forced to resign from office, Richard Nixon. The film is called Frost/Nixon and is set in 1977, three years after Nixon’s resignation. It recreates a famous set of televised interviews where Nixon broke his silence for the first time since leaving office. He was interviewed by British talk show host David Frost for more than twenty-eight hours. The interview ended with Nixon making a tacit admission of guilt regarding his role in the Watergate scandal.
