In my Ron Paul Curriculum course on American literature, everything I teach from 1915 to the present is based on movies. This is where American literature has had its greatest impact, both domestic and foreign.
I watched the 1976 movie, All the President’s Men, a few days ago. I had seen it before, but I needed to see it again. I regard it as one of the great movies of all time. It is virtually flawless as literature: the telling of a story.
One of the things that you learn when you watch the movie, if you’re paying attention, is this. Everything turned on one peculiar fact: two of the burglars’ notebooks that had two pieces of information: H H at W H, and Howard Hunt.
