Nixon the Conqueror

I caught a cold at AX, so I've been taking it easy at home this weekend. Yesterday, I watched two movies on video: MASTER OF THE WORLD, a 1961 American International Pictures adaptation of a Jules Verne novel, which was essentially 20,000 Leagues over the Sea; and FROST/NIXON, Ron Howard's 2008 movie about, well, David Frost and Richard Nixon.

At some level, I think, both movies told the same story.
