Secret Honor is a movie adapted from a play about Richard Nixon. Starring Philip Baker Hall as former president Nixon, the production is a fictional account attempting to gain insight into the politician’s personality, life, attitudes and behavior. Throughout the monologue, Nixon's description of himself changes. Sometimes he calls himself a man of the people, saying that he could succeed because he has known failure, just like the average American; but he also emphasizes that he never committed a crime, alluding to Watergate. Secret Honor was filmed at the University of Michigan.
