The first scene! The first Bloody scene!

Int. Reagan Bedroom -- White House

Mike Deaver
I got a call from John Tower…He wants to talk to you, Mr. President…

Reagan is still staring into the tv. It’s a cowboy movie.


Nancy
It’s okay, Mike. Go on.

Deaver turns to Nancy, lowers his voice


Deaver
(in a whisper)
They’re beginning to talk about impeachment.

She begins to tremble.

Nancy
They’ll never impeach him.
They won’t have the votes for it in the Senate.

If anyone wants to download this to examine it, you can click the right-hand mouse button on the link and choose "Save Target As" from the pop-up menu.

I'm very happy that this one was sent to Showtime, the TV equivalent of Siberia. Reagan is a great man and deserves better.

The only thing that would be better is if they just trash-canned the whole film.

Right after this ecer so subtle it has Nancy speaking of her psychic friend:

Nancy: "Dire events" she said. Well these are dire events.

Deaver: Who said that? Your friend?

Then Nancy goes on to say that she will call her friend to get the date when Reagan should go on TV to speak to the American people about the Iran Contra Affair. She says "We've got to listen to her, Mike. When we don't listen to her we get into trouble."

A complete piece of crap. This is worse than I thought. Just look at any three or four scenes throughout the script. Every single one portrays the Reagans in a terrible way.

It's obvious no research was done at all for the script. The authors just remembered what they could about the Reagan administration and invented all the behind-the-scenes nastiness.

Thanks for the 'Headzup'. After reading your Post #3, I'm gonna skip this.

Not only is this script a poisoned-pen-letter aimed directly at Republicans and Conservatives by hateful, spiteful, vindictive Leftists/Democrats/Liberals/aging, bo-toxed, Anti-American Hollywood Divas, but I can ONLY imagine what the biased actors have done by breathing life into a script like this.

This has been a travesty, and I'm grateful the American people are starting to stand up to the powers-that-be when they try to pawn their psychotic-worldview/crap off on us.

You can say that again. Small wonder why CBS President Leslie Moonves shelved the project, given that it could have resulted in a HUGE public-relations fiasco for CBS and several prominent advertisers suffering major consumer boycotts at the busiest shopping season of the year.

Moonves may be a close friend of the Clinton family but when serious dollar signs are involved, that overrides all other considerations. "Babs" Streisand may be p***** off but she doesn't have to deal with a financial impact that could run into the many millions of dollars for everyone involved including the advertisers.

LOL, only a handful of loons on the left talked about Impeachment like Conyers and Jackson. Just shows you how far left the perspective of this movie is.

I would bet my house, that if this same group of idiots made a movie about clintoon, they wouldn't even mention the actual impeachment. Yet, it all has something to do with free speech.

Oh one more thing: I think an entity no less powerful than the National Football League may have played a behind the scenes role in CBS shelving the miniseries. You forget that CBS will be broadcasting the next Super Bowl game and if CBS had broadcast The Reagans as scheduled it would have resulted in potentially disastrous effects on Super Bowl TV advertising sales, sales that help CBS recoup the cost of producing the Super Bowl.

Top ten lines of "THE REAGANS"

10. Just round them up and have them killed, Nancy.
9. Nancy, TEAR DOWN THAT WALL. I don't care if the $%&*# room can't be called the "OVAL" office anymore. This is our place, now, and you've got a right to redecorate.
8. Round up those others, too. And have them tortured and killed, Nancy.
7. Where's that list of people we're going to kill, Nancy?
6. Who put that half-baked Marine in charge of the Contra thing? Me? Are you sure?
5. I just talked to the VP's kid, GW. What a simpleton.
4. My husband's the President, you fool. And you better shape up or we'll have you killed.
3. They that die by sin shall live by sin. Did I get that right? I'm so confused.
2. Cheney better keep his hands out of the cookie jar on this one...what a greedy B%$%*^#.
1. First ammendment, my *##. Shut down the New York Times.

HOLY CRAP!!!

This essentially alleges that Ronald got Nancy pregnant at some point before they were married, and her mother arranged for her to get an abortion.

Putting it up in pdf form pretty much guarntees that it can't just go away. It's 8 meg long, 213 pages though.

Based on my reading of the first scene, each scene may deserve its own thread.

can't paste this thing, it's a scanned copy of the actual typed script, images not text. It's a pdf. It is fascinating, though, to visit the minds of the writers.

For opening "establishing" shots they show homeless men with signs that say Reagan put me here, crazy people mumbling on sidewalks ( as a way of saying that Reagan emptied the nut houses, while it was the UCLU), childish crap like that.

This is a heavy handed smear, nothing subtle about it. Reagan swears and barks at people. Sheesh.

[context: sometime during their courtship, immediately after Nancy threatens to move back to New York]

-----------------------

He grabs her arm, swings her around. He's angry.

REAGAN: You can't do this to me.

He starts kissing her, hard. Desperate. She pulls back, surprised. He pushes her against the sink, still kissing her. The tap water runs and runs.

INT. DAVIS LIVING ROOM - HOME - CHICAGO

Wealthy. Intellectual. Midwestern. Nancy sits in a chair, crying. Edie sits, opposite. They whisper:

EDIE: Well, one thing is clear -- you can't tell Ronnie. He's too religious, he'll never marry you.

NANCY: I can't tell him?

EDIE: But you'd better get him to marry you. And quick. you don't have any time to lose.

NANCY: I can't force him to marry me, Mother. For God's sake.

She sobs hysterically.

EDITH: Shh, keep it down, or Dr. Loyal will hear you --

Nancy can't stop crying. Edith pats her on the arm.

EDIE: (in a whisper, anxiously) Don't worry, honey. Don't worry, we'll get it fixed. I know somebody right here in Chicago, she can fix it. She's good. She never hurts anybody. But we can never tell Dr. Loyal, you hear? Never. Never.

Nancy stares at her mother, stricken.

I'll put it on my list right after I get through examining piles a manure, vomit and how to be gay manuals.

On second thought, there are some things in life I would rather not see. Reagan smeared is one of them.

It's more than disgusting. It's probably illegal. If there is no source for the pregnancy/abortion angle, wouldn't it represent slander and libel? If I were Nancy, I'd get legal representation for this. I'm thinking the RNC might even have an interest in this.

If I were a CBS stock-holder, I would be very upset that they spent $9 million for a piece of rubbish like this. Just a look at the first draft should have put a halt to this stink bomb. Did the execs at CBS really believe this hit piece wouldn't cause a problem?

I don't know of any legal bump list. A defamation suit involving public figures based on a docu-drama would seem DOA to me. There is no actual assertion of fact, and what one needs to show are assertions of fact one knows are false, or perhaps made with a reckless disregard for the truth, and published maliciously. That is the standard set forth in the Sullivan SCOTUS case.

Patti wrestles the remote away from him. Micheal turns to Maureen, muttering:

Micheal: Jody Foster? He shot Dad in order to impress Jody Foster?

Ron: Wait till Dad hears he was shot by a deranged movie fan. He'll love it.

Maureen: That's not funny, Ron.

Patti: I think it's funny.

Doria: Maybe now he'll change his mind about gun control.

Maureen: Gun control? You think gun control would have stopped this guy?

Micheal: Oh great. Blame the victim.

Ron: Back off, you guys. Doria's right.

Michael: You guys ought toread the newspaper once in a while. Maybe then you'd wake up, and ditch this hippie crap.

As her family continues to argue, Patti buries her head in her hands.

Patti: What kind of family is this? Even a bullet can't bring us together.

Now that I've looked around a bit, it seems to me that I'm outraged simply because I've been out of circulation for awhile. A lot of people have looked at this already and there's another post even today about an internet site that was instrumental in bringing about the CBS decision. It's still unfortunte that it will be aired on Showtime however.
