Primary Colors

Libby Holden shoots herself in the chest unable to cope with covering Governor Jack Stanton's ass over his sordid secrets or his not so honest behavior in protecting himself. Henry Burton stumbles across her dead in her van with the cops surrounding her and breaks down in tears. At her funeral Jack reads her final note and accepts to the congergation his flaws. He then presents Gov. Fred Picker with his seedy past and a devistated Fed realises he must drop out and how shall he tell his sons. Despite Henry intending to drop out of presidential candidate campaign of Jack...we see at the end in the white house that he is still standing back Jack as Stanton celibrates with his wife having been sworn in as the next president.

THE TRUTH HURTS

Other mistake: In the scene at the kitchen table where the New York analyst is suggesting ways for Jack Stanton to deny the allegations he has impregnated a teenage black woman, to the staff he says, "We can go on Montel or Geraldo or some show like that." Only his mouth doesn't say "Montel." He is saying "Oprah," but has been dubbed in post-production to say Montel.
