Byck had a history of mental illness, and in the years prior to his death he sent letters and recorded tapes to a variety of famous people, with a special affection for composer Leonard Bernstein? Byck?s actions took place a week after Robert Preston stole an Army helicopter and landed inside the White House Complex, just 150 feet from the West Wing (he was ultimately shot down and wounded)? The Assassination of Richard Nixon, a feature film based on Byck, was released in 2004 and starred Sean Penn as ?Sam Bicke.?
