    Notes (1)

    • Anthony Hopkins was initially reluctant to take the title role in this film, saying that, as  a Welshman, he could hardly play an American president. However, he had a great personal success in the part and later played another president, John Adams, in the 1997 film Amistad. Both Nixon and Adams were, interestingly, men of Welsh ancestry, albeit distantly so.

    • Sam Waterston's two scenes as CIA director Richard Helms were originally deleted from the film for its cinema release as the film was already over three hours long. They were, however, restored for the DVD release.
