President’s Analyst, The (1967)

It may seem dated today, but this clever satire was the ultimate hip trip back in the Swinging Sixties, and it is still very, very funny.

Talented iconoclast Theodore J Flicker wrote and directed, and profited from the presence of James Coburn in the lead as the suave psychiatrist earmarked for secret service assassination, only to be saved by other agencies interested in the information they assume has passed between the president and his shrink.


Coburn leads them all a merry chase, notably causing international havoc during a hilarious sex romp with hippy Jill Banner.

The film’s look, in Technicolored Panavision, will delight all baby-boomers as they recognise that quintessential 1960s surface gloss.
