PASSAGES: E. HOWARD HUNT

"This fellow Hunt... he knows too much."
President Richard M. Nixon
June, 1972


E. Howard Hunt was in charge of the disasterous Watergate break-in which led to the downfall of Nixon and his administration.

In the Television Universe, Hunt looked like an actor in the Real World named James Greene and like an actor named FJ O'Neil. Since the Howard Hunt that looked like Greene was first seen in 1978, he is the one from Earth Prime-Time. Earth Prime-Time/Remake can claim the Watergate burglar who looked like O'Neil, as he first appeared in in 1982.

James Greene (I) (E. Howard Hunt)
. . . "Blind Ambition" (1979) (mini) TV Series

F.J. O'Neil (Howard Hunt)
. . . Will: The Autobiography of G. Gordon Liddy (1982) (TV)

E. Howard Hunt died Tuesday in Miami at the age of 88.....

I saw in another post that you don't do your research.

That's probably why you didn't list Ed Harris as playing Hunt in "Nixon"....

It was easy enough to check out.

And if you had looked further into what this blog is all about, you'd know that I excluded Harris (and Bill Zuckert in another movie) because they were in theatrically released movies, not TV movies.

Therefore they'd have no bearing on the TV Universe.

But thanks for checking in, I guess.....
