Larry Karaszewski on

The President’s Analyst

Released 1967
Distributor Paramount

One of most charming and clever political satires of the ’60s almost didn’t make it to the screen intact. Director Theodore J. Flicker’s background in improv comedy provides cohesion to a wild scenario that pissed off everybody from the CIA to the FBI. James Coburn spoofs his Our Man Flint image as a paranoid psychiatrist who ends up battling Our Real Enemy – The Phone Company.
