About Killing Reagan:
A dramatic film based on Bill O’Reilly’s best-seller, Killing Reagan explores how the attempted assassination of President Ronald Reagan impacted his presidency. Reaching back to the golden days of Hollywood through his years in the California governor’s mansion, Killing Reagan goes in-depth on Reagan's rise to power, nearly cut short after a gunman’s bullet came within inches of his heart.
