Albert Hunt proposed staging The White House Goes to the Movies to the organisers of the 1976 Adelaide Festival as a double bill with The White Man's Mission. The show comprises two short plays that had previously been performed in England by Albert Hunt's Bradford company. Each looks at a particular American presidency - those of Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon. Hunt's take on Johnson was to see him as if he was Longfellow Deeds, the simple country bumpkin who refuses to be corrupted by the city in Capra's Mr Deeds Goes to Town. He treats Nixon as if he were Marilyn Monroe in Some Like it Hot.
