The untold true story behind the meeting between Elvis Presley, the King of Rock 'n Roll, and President Richard Nixon, resulting in this revealing, yet humorous moment immortalized in the most requested photograph in the National Archives.
Jerry Parr was a 9-year-old boy when his father took him to see the movie Code of the Secret Service (1939) starring Ronald Reagan as dashing agent Brass Bancroft. The film inspired Jerry Parr to join the U.S. Secret Service, and he was widely credited with saving Reagan's life during the 1981 assassination attempt. Parr later told Reagan how the movie had influenced him to become a Secret Service agent. The president reportedly laughed and said, "That was the cheapest film I ever made." See more »
When the Hinckleys are at their table eating, we see a Pepsi bottle with a 21st-century logo. It's quite different from the one used in 1981. See more »
The Movie Goes Well Beyond The Story About The Attempted Assassination
Had I known Ridley Scott and Rod Lurie were involved with Killing Reagan I would have watched the movie months ago. But the real surprise was Tim Matheson and Cynthia Nixon's superb performances and endearing portrayal of the first couple. From the director of The Contender, another one of my favorite movies, Killing Reagan is one of the best docudramas ever.
