The President's Analyst ★★★½ 1967

A superbly written, brilliantly executed satire from the mind of Theodore J. Flicker, who wrote as well as directed. Coburn steals the show as a psychiatrist who has the dubious honor of being appointed “secret shrink” to the President of the U.S. Pressures of the job steadily increase his paranoia until he suspects he is being pursued by agents and counter agents alike. Is he losing his sanity or…? Vastly entertaining. 104m/C VHS, DVD . James Coburn, Godfrey Cambridge, Severn Darden, Joan Delaney, Pat Harrington, Will Geer, William Daniels, Barry McGuire, Jill Banner, Arte Johnson; D: Theodore J. Flicker; W: Theodore J. Flicker; C: William A. Fraker; M: Lalo Schifrin.
