Nixon

Continuity mistake: In the B&W newsclip scenes, Mr. Hopkins is wearing a prosthesis to make his nose longer, a la Nixon. This appliance was apparently jettisoned for the main shoot.

Visible crew/equipment: In one of the switches from black and white to colour, you can see the boom mike.

Trivia: General Haig says the line "I'm in charge here." The real Alexander Haig said this in 1981 as Ronald Reagan's Secretary of State, after Reagan had been shot.

Trivia: Fred Dalton Thompson, movie actor and later U.S. Senator from Tennessee, appears in one of the archival clips of the Senate Watergate investigation. He was an attorney with Senate staff before going into acting.

Richard M. Nixon: Presidents don't threaten. They don't have to.

Richard M. Nixon: Always remember: others may hate you. But those who hate you don't win unless you hate them. And then you destroy yourself.

John Dean: Can I ask you a question? How the hell do you have the temerity to blackmail the President of the United States?
E. Howard Hunt: That's not the question, John. The question is: why is he paying?
