Synopsis
The Watergate crisis as viewed by John Dean and his wife Maureen, based on their respective personal accounts, and distilled into an eight-hour drama with all of the political figures of the day parading by. Sheen, whose gamut of political portrayals has run from Robert Kennedy (in "The Missiles of October") to to John F. Kennedy several years later, is Dean during his years as counsel to President Nixon. Theresa Russell made her TV acting debut as Maureen Dean. Rip Torn's offbeat Nixon seems to have been based on personal feeling rather than on research and occasionally threatened to derail the entire concept of the drama. "Blind Ambition" was nominated for an Emmy as the Outstanding Limited Series of the 1978-79 season. A second nomination went to the film for Art Direction/Set Decoration (Part 3).
