A fascinating, 30 year old BBC documentary on the Good Doctor and Ralph Steadman, five years after Nixon’s resignation, and on a road trip to Hollywood (to work on what would become “Where the Buffalo Roam“).

Includes an interesting scene of John Dean chatting with Hunter about his Watergate testimony (at about 32 minutes), the birth of the “Re-Elect Nixon Campaign” (with a Bill Murray cameo), and a remarkably eerie scene with Hunter and Ralph planning Hunter’s final monument and his ashes being shot into the air, long before the actual fact.

    Hunter S. Thompson is in his own class of journalism, The Rum Diaries is one of my favorite reads. Great Video.

    Few writers transfer well to screen, something Thompson is acutely aware of in this documentary.

    ya really..Gonzo The Life and Work of Dr. Hunter S Thompson is a much much better documentary. I believe it has a pretty good protrayal of the man the way he was wanted to be seen by the world. Much love and respect Hunter. RIP
