Heartwarming: Nixon

  • After his visit to China, Nixon is encouraged to meet the press on Air Force One. Cynical after having always (in his mind) been the press' kicking boy, he reluctantly goes back to "discover the width, length and breadth of the shaft". However, when he gets there, the entire room bursts into a standing ovation for him, and one lady even kisses him on the cheek. The surprised look of joy on Nixon's face is probably one of the few times we see him genuinely happy throughout the entire movie.
