BIOGRAPHY (CBS): FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT - PARTS I & II (43 Min., Black And White)
The pioneer of all TV biography documentary series goes beyond its usual standard-setting treatments in reverence of the life of this great man. Narrated by Mike Wallace.
POWER BEHIND THE SMILE: THE LIFE AND TIMES OF FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT (45 Min., Color)
An excellent exposition of how FDR used the fledgling power of radio to broadcast his "Fireside Chats", his messages of hope and confidence to the American people during the darkest days of the Great Depression. Excellent color film from the Pacific and European theaters of World War II and of Japanese Relocation Centers in America such as Manzinar Camp. Narrated by Sir Michael Redgrave.
PERSPECTIVE ON GREATNESS: THE VOICE OF CHANGE (1952, 50 Min. Black And White)
A documentary winningly produced in the old school manner of substance over style, covering the years from FDR's birth to just prior to America's involvment in World War Two, with special attention given to his domestic economic and social achievements and a spotlight on his battles with The Supreme Court.
PERSPECTIVE ON GREATNESS: THE PRICE OF PEACE (1952, 50 Min., Black And White)
A step by step analysis of how President Roosevelt walked a fine line between direct military involvement in the Second World War and supporting Great Britain during her finest hour, as well as how he lead the nation to a victory he himself would not live to see.
NOTHING TO FEAR: THE LEGACY OF FDR (1969, 45 Min., Color)
The years since his administration and this documentary provided much more time to reflect on his tenure as president by the light of more recent revelations, such as his deliberate provocation of German U-Boats during the months immediately preceding America's entry into World War II.
AMERICAN LIFESTYLE: FRANKLIN ROOSEVELT'S HYDE PARK (1975, 24 Min., Color)
E.G. Marshall narrates this retrospective of the life of Franklin Roosevelt through a fascinating tour of his family's ancestral home of Hyde Park, New York, the estate on the Hudson River where FDR was born, grew, lived out his adult life, and is buried.
UNIVERSAL NEWSREEL: "DAY OF INFAMY" SPEECH (December 8, 1941, 5 Min., B&W)
This film was how the world first saw President Franklin Roosevelt deliver his "Day of Infamy" speech, when he appeared before a joint session of Congress to request that a state of war be declared between the United States and Japan.
THE AMERICAN DOCUMENTS: JUST AROUND THE CORNER (1976, 45 min.)
An excellent overview of the years of "The New Deal" produced by Post-Newsweek. It provides an insightful analysis of the history of those times in America; the political and economic struggles for and against The New Deal lead by men such as Roosevelt and Long, Father Coughlin and Henry Ford, Upton Sinclair and others; the use of films to propagandize for and against The New Deal employed by Roosevelt and Zanuch, Mayer and King Vidor; and the life and loss experienced by the general masses of the disenfranchised. Narrated by the great film and television voice actor Alexander Scourby.
