A widowed U.S. President running for reelection and an environmental lobbyist fall in love. It's all above-board, but "politics is perception," and sparks fly anyway.
Aaron Sorkin and Michael J. Fox were born on the same day: June 9, 1961.
I think the important thing is not to make it look like we're panicking.
President Andrew Shepherd: See, and I think the important thing is actually not to BE panicking.
When Sydney first spends the night in the residence at the White House, the President is awakened by Lewis stating that the press is camped out at all entrances. When Lewis comes up to the President's bedroom and then is followed by A.J and Robin, the President puts on his robe. In one shot shortly after putting on the robe the t-shirt he is wearing is scrunched up at the neck under his robe - the shot continues from a different angle and the t-shirt is perfectly straight.
Company logos change between versions. For example, on the laserdisc, the movie starts with a 20-second silent Columbia logo (before the Castle Rock logo), and the end credits crawl includes (after the title of the movie has gone onscreen) a line-art logo "Released by Columbia Pictures/A Sony Pictures Entertainment company" that crawls up and stops, over the end of the music. On the international prints, the 1990-1997 Universal logo was played and it was also silent. The 1999 WB DVD skips the opening logo, starting with the Castle Rock logo instead, and where the Columbia logo at the end should appear as the music ends, a still clouds-and-shield WB logo appears instead (Distributed by WB/A Warner Communications Company). The Columbia versions are probably truer to the original theatrical release. See also The Shawshank Redemption.
