The Ten Greatest Movie Nixons

With Ron Howard's Frost/Nixon opening this week — along with the release of hundreds of new hours of Nixon tapes (how conveeenient) — America's 37th president is back in the news. And it couldn't have come at a more critical time — let's face it, Tricky Dick's claim to the title of America's Premier Political Bogeyman has been shaky these past eight years. But until Dubya headlines his own torture-porn horror franchise (hey, it could happen), Richard Milhous Nixon will still be the nation's favorite movie president — only Lincoln, with his hundred-year head start, can even hope to challenge him. Click for Vulture's list of the Ten Greatest Movie Nixons.
