When The King Met The President20100105

"Dear Mr. President. First, I would like to introduce myself. I am Elvis Presley and admire you and have great respect for your office.

Martin Sheen looks at the King of Rock 'n' Roll's 1970 meeting with President Nixon. In a storyline as fascinating as any created for President Bartlet's White House, he reveals how Elvis approached Nixon to offer his services to the United States Of America.

Elvis expressed a desire to be made a Federal Agent at Large. He wanted to communicate with, and report on, what he felt were harmful factions threatening America and he believed his star status would allow him a non-threatening entrance into the closed environment of these groups. He arrived at the White House gate on the morning of December 21 with two bodyguards and some family photos and a commemorative World War II pistol intended as gifts for the President.

Contributors include President Nixon's aides, Egil Bud Krogh and Dwight Chapin, who were in the meeting with Elvis. We'll also hear from Jerry Schilling, one of Elvis' inner circle, who was with him in the Oval Office. He reveals why the meeting was so important to The King and how the relationship continued beyond the first meeting.
