The President’s Analyst

The President's Analyst is a superior satire on some sacred cows, principally the lightly camouflaged FBI, hippies, psychiatry, liberal and conservative politics - and the telephone company.

The President’s Analyst is a superior satire on some sacred cows, principally the lightly camouflaged FBI, hippies, psychiatry, liberal and conservative politics – and the telephone company.

Inventive story peg – James Coburn starring as the personal analyst to the President of the US – is fleshed out with hilarious incidents which zero in on, and hit, their targets.

William Daniels scores as an upper-middle class compulsive liberal, whose family practices marksmanship, karate and eaves-dropping because of right-wing neighbours.

Barry McGuire and Jill Banner are hippies, and Banner’s sex scene with Coburn – in fields of flowers right out of some cosmetics teleblurb – is a comedy highlight in which several foreign and domestic spies kill each other off as they plot Coburn’s demise.
