Product Notes

FDR showcases Robert Vaughn's gutsy portrayal of one of the most charismatic leaders of the 20th century, American President - Franklin Delano Roosevelt. After a documentary introduction showing footage of the nomination, election campaign, and inauguration of F.D.R., actor Robert Vaughn, in wheel chair with cigarette, tells jokes and the story of his life, from the days he was struck with polio. He reveals his friendships, his political strategy, his way of dealing with the press and his counselors, but also how he moves around as a handicapped person, and how that formed his attitude towards life and politics. This one-man show takes US through FDR's White House years including the Depression, the steps leading up to WWII and the war years. Robert Vaughn shows US why this president was known as "that man in the White House," scorned by many and admired by most. We see and hear his fireside chats; his controversial packing of the Supreme Court; his personal life with Eleanor and his discreet but definite affair with Lucy Mercer; his courage to break the Neutrality Act; his manipulation of Congress (in order to gt the country to have a draft); the Pearl Harbor controversy and the benevolent dictatorship he called the presidency from 1933-44, which made him the first man in history to be elected to four terms. Robert Vaughn is magnificent as FDR and delivers a fearless performance of this dynamic and powerful world leader.
