National Review;5/27/1977, Vol. 29 Issue 20, p595
This article provides a commentary by the author on Richard Nixon and the David Frost interviews. It appears to the author that Nixon has lied to himself more than to the American public. He comments that Pete Hamill can be quoted as comparing Nixon to Bela Lugosi, in that public wished him to disappear but he keeps resurfacing. Gary Wills also compared Nixon to Boris Karloff as he played the monster Frankenstein.
