From his beloved summer home in Kennebunkport, ME, where he has come nearly every year since childhood, George Herbert Walker Bush, the 41st President of the United States, tells the story of his life. Capturing the president while driving around the property in a golf cart (with his Maltese mix Bebe in tow) as he shares the history of the house and its surrounding structures (including the fishing shed that holds his prize catches) and sitting for one-on-one interviews, 41 offers a rare glimpse at the life and times of a living former president. In between his many public appearances, which have slowed only recently due to the developing Parkinsonism in his legs, the 87-year-old Bush now spends much of his time on his boat, where he feels, “I’m still in the game,” and with children and grandchildren who come to visit him and his wife, Barbara. Over the course of this feature documentary, which deftly weaves personal photos, black-and-white family films, news and archival footage, George H. W. Bush reflects on the highs and lows (including the loss of a 3-year old daughter to leukemia) of his life, sharing personal anecdotes from his childhood, his family, serving in WWII, his political career, and more.
It was a pleasure to watch. I loved how it was him telling the story of his own life!Published 10 months ago by Regina Bello
Amazing! Everyone should have a copy of this. Probably the most experienced of any President we have ever had. His life story is so inspiration. Read morePublished 11 months ago by Janis
Gave it to my boss (he's a huge Bush fan & Republican) & he loved it. Definitely a piece of history worth having.Published on July 9, 2013 by Patricia Ordasi
