Corrected entry: There's an external shot of the British Airways jet that Frost is flying over to the US on. The logo is British Airways, but on the tail is BOAC's logo.

Correction: The British Airways / BOAC hybrid scheme was used for some time after BOAC was dissolved in 1974 as it took some time to re-paint all of the planes. The film is therefore correct.

Corrected entry: Richard Nixon to Frost: "I didn't see them (the interviews) when they went out." TV programs "going out" is a purely British TV industry term. Nixon instead would have referred to the interviews as not having seen them when they "were on" or "when they aired."

Correction: This appears to be entirely based on your opinion of what phrases might or might not be used by a given individual. Opinions are not considered valid sources for mistakes. Please provide evidence that no American individual, particularly an experienced, media-savvy international politician like Nixon, would ever use such a phrase.

Richard Nixon: I let them down. I let down my friends, I let down my country, and worst of all I let down our system of government, and the dreams of all those young people that ought to get into government but now they think; 'Oh it's all too corrupt and the rest'. Yeah... I let the American people down. And I'm gonna have to carry that burden with me for the rest of my life. My political life is over.



The Sydney harbor scenes have the backdrop of the opera house. The buildings (aka "The Toaster") beside the opera house were not completed until 1998. The film was set in 1976-77.



Both Frank Langella and Michael Sheen played their respective roles in the original Broadway production.
