A gem
This is a little seen short film written, directed, and starring Woody, as the title character, Harvey Wallinger--close personal confidant of Pres Nixon. Using skillfully edited footage, Woody inserts himself amid real documentary footage of Nixon and Agnew. Some of the material is unbelievable--where ever did he get it? It also stars two of Woody's staples--Diane Keaton and Louise Lasser, and they are hilarious as well. It holds up to repeat viewings very well, and in fact one joke (involving the NY Times) is so funny that i laugh out loud every time i hear it. Woody's absolute disgust with Nixon comes through, and overall this special seems a tad more nasty than i think the Woodman is known for, which (to me) makes it even funnier. One of Woody's funniest movies, even if it is only about a half hour long. Find it on Ebay if you can!
