Penny Lane

Compiled from the Super 8 home movies shot by H.R. Haldeman, John Ehrlichman and Dwight Chapin, this documentary provides a never before seen look at the presidency of Richard Nixon. These top aides—and convicted Watergate conspirators—documented events ranging from the Apollo moon landing to Tricia Nixon’s White House wedding. The footage documents the rise of Haldeman, Ehrlichman, and Chapin in the early days of Nixon’s presidency, and their precipitous fall during the Watergate scandal. “Our Nixon captures not only what went on in the White House on the most personal level, but how the spirit of a nation was refracted through 1600 Pennsylvania Ave.” (Variety)
