Lent: Part 14

The President’s Analyst (1967) – A solid premise for a comedy; a respected analyst is conscripted to serve as the psychiatrist to the President of the United States. I can’t say that this movie disappointed me, but it definitely took the premise in a direction I wasn’t expecting and kept going with it. Like if a train derailed and then just kept barreling across the countryside as if nothing happened, digging deep grooves into the earth as it went, making its regular stops, but hundreds of miles off target.

Furthermore, for the record, James Coburn was more attractive than any of his features should allow, yet somehow when combined together, he had a very charismatic air about him. His voice might have contributed to that.
