Nixon In The U. S. S. R. Highlights of Vice President Richard M. Nixon's tour of the Soviet Union. His party views the Reds' nuclear-powered ice-breaker 'Lenin', after a clash over whether the visitors are being permitted the same close inspection granted Kozlov of America's nuclear ship, earlier. On many of his points of call, Nixon is greeted by hecklers, primed with anti-American questions. City street scene (VO says Leningrad). Nixon talks amid a crowd, reporter jots notes. Nixon and others tour factory, where the V.P. talks and factory workers smile and applaud (they look earnestly friendly). Ship with sign that says "Lenin." Nixon leaves ship, shakes hands with people in the crowd (presumably Soviet citizens).
