It led to an awkward Oval Office photo that the National Archives says is its most requested image, more than even man walking on the moon – which probably was a more predictable sight than Elvis Presley standing next to Nixon.What the movie, directed by Liza Johnson, lacks in factual material it replaces with whimsy and quirky humor, helped greatly by the casting of Michael Shannon as Presley and Kevin Spacey as Nixon.While on the subject of impersonation, both Presley and Nixon are such larger-than-life characters that any actor playing them seems likely to teeter on the precipice of mimicry.Presented with Presley's childishly scrawled note, Nixon's young aides like the idea of their very square boss engaging with a pop legend – good for the youth vote.
