FDR and his life

By Mark

from El Paso, TX

Comments about PBS American Experience: FDR DVD:

This dvd is very good on the history of FDR and his life. It is showing its age in the dvd but as a scholar of the Great Depression, it brings out some good information on his life and why the New Deal worked and its roots.

Learn the inside story

Comments about PBS American Experience: FDR DVD:

There is so much I discovered about the US president during the depression adn WW2 from this comprehensive DVD. From his earliest years with an alcoholic father and overbearing mother, to courting and marrying his distant cousin, to being the US president for 4 terms, FDR was much more than history recalls. The DVD is a combination of still photos and moving pictures from his own time and color stills and video in modern day. Highly recommended!

An Incredible Video ; a work of art

By PBS Fan

Comments about PBS American Experience: FDR DVD:

FDR's memory is a brilliant and inspiring star. He is a supernova shining against a dark and depressing backdrop of black holes represented by the likes of Willard Romney, Paul Ryan, Sarah Palin, George W. Bush, Ronald Reagan, Richard Nixon, Joe McCarthy, Lee Harvey Oswald, Benedict Arnold, Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer and other assorted psychopaths, and twisted evil creatures of U.S. history. It should be required that this video be watched by every high school student as a precondition for graduation and every immigrant a precondition for U.S citizenship.

Comments about PBS American Experience: FDR DVD:

Fantastic telling of FDR's life and times. Still photos and video from the late 1800's to the time he passed away in 1945...stunning! This DVD should not be missed.
