OUR NIXON

Among the stranger remnants of the Watergate era are some 500 reels of Super 8 home movies created by aspiring – and conspiring – filmmakers named Haldeman, Ehrlichman and Chapin, which were confiscated and stored by the FBI. This recently released treasure grants extraordinary access to the everyday intrigues and unsettling machinations of the Nixon White House. Salient, often bizarre extracts from the secret White House tapes add fitting commentary for erstwhile Watergate junkies and Nixon neophytes alike. – TM
