A fictionalized former President Richard M. Nixon offers a solitary, stream-of-consciousness reflection on his life and political career - and the "true" reasons for the Watergate scandal and his resignation.
Of the film's digital restoration, the movie's the Criterion Collection DVD sleeve notes state: "Secret Honor is presented in its original aspect ratio of 1:33:1. On widescreen televisions, black bars will appear on the left and right of the image to maintain the proper screen format. This new high-definition digital transfer was created on a Spirit Datacine from a 16mm Interpositive. Thousands of instances of dirt, debris, and scratches were removed using the MTI Digital Restoration System. The soundtrack was mastered at a 24-bit from the optical soundtrack negative, and audio restoration tools were used to reduce clicks, pops, hiss, and crackle. The Dolby Digtial I.0 signal will be directed to the center channel on 5.I-channel sound systems, but some viewers may prefer to switch to two-channel playback for a wider dispersal of the mono sound".
Testing, one, two, three, four.
Even though the real Richard Nixon could play the piano, the real Richard Nixon never learned how to read music. During the part of the film when Richard Nixon is playing his piano sheet music is visible on his piano. It is unlikely that Richard Nixon would have had sheet music on his piano, since he didn't read music.
