"Here is the inimitable Ritchie in the Washington of John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson, wryly reflecting the stormy family relationship between American and Canadian governments as he writes of being 'shooed' out of President Kennedy's office, or of watching transfixed through a window as Present Johnson vents his fury on a mild-mannered Lester B. Pearson. We see him, too, carrying out the social functions of High Commissioner in London with a certain amiable self-mockery, cutting a ribbon here, touring a dockyard there, and constantly a bit embarrassed by the length of the 'hearse' he has been given for transportation." - from the dj.
