Documentary is comprised of never-before-seen amateur film footage of the president
CNN's latest CNN Films documentary, "Our Nixon," will premiere on the channel Thursday at 9 p.m.
The film, directed by Penny Lane, is made out of hundreds of hours of Super8 shot by three of Nixon's aides (special assistant Dwight Chapin, domestic affairs adviser John Ehrlichman and chief of staff H.R. Haldeman), newsreel footage and excerpts from Nixon's secret, swear-filled audiotapes to create a unique look at the 37th president.
"The film deteriorated into the usual propaganda of the Nixon haters," he wrote.
CNN Films began operations in October 2012. On Monday, it announced it would produce a documentary about Hillary Clinton.
