With the funeral service today (Friday, March 11) for Nancy Reagan, a look back at her at age 54 in 1975 when she talked to Mike Wallace for a 60 Minutes segment about her husband’s soon-to-launch campaign against President Gerald Ford for the 1976 Republican presidential nomination.
This three-and-half-minute excerpt from the story, “Mr. Right,” aired on CBS on Sunday night, December 14, 1975, was taped at the ranch, in the mountains above Santa Barbara which the couple bought earlier that year, and at their home in Los Angeles.
(In 1998, Mrs. Reagan sold the ranch to the Young America’s Foundation. Pictures of the property.)
