Description
He led America's battles against the Depression and the Axis powers - and won. But first Franklin Delano Roosevelt fought a personal battle against polio that would either destroy him - or arm him for greatness. This powerful film of Dore Schary's long-running play is an intimate, admiring profile in courage. Ralph Bellamy reprises his dynamic, Tony-winning stage portrayal of the future President and Greer Garson is his devoted, warbly-voiced wife Eleanor. Both are uncannily true in their roles and acclaim followed: Garson earned Golden Globe and National Board of Review Best Actress Awards as well as one of the movie's four Oscar nominations.* With exteriors filmed at Campobello and Hyde Park and interiors staged on uncanny duplications of the real-life Roosevelt homes, Sunrise At Campobello shines eloquently and movingly.

    Comments about this product:

    I enjoyed this historical movie about the earlier years of Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor. Ralph Bellamy plays FDR and Greer Garson plays Eleanor.

    I was amazed that Greer's lovely voice managed to squeak and pitch high, much like the real life first Lady. I knew that raising many children, interfering mother-in-law, and permanent house-guest political adviser got her down. Then have to be his legs in keeping her husband career going! She down played her beauty and looked more frumpy. Then learning to be a speech maker!

    Meanwhile Ralph gave a performance that must have challenged him. Crawl along the floor! It was his deep interest in politics that kept him from wallowing in self-pity. He had to learn to stand and then struggle to walk short trips. Then learn to move from wheel chair to the automobile gracefully. His challenges and determination is what built his man to become a really great president.

    It was a powerful story how both overcame obstacles.

    Comments about this product:

    The movie began with promise but got bogged down with political minutia. The film should have either focused on the medical crisis OR the political issues, but it bit off too much with both and became boring and sluggish.
