Editorial Reviews

The latest in a series of critically-acclaimed presidential portraits, this biography examines the life and career of our 41st president, from his service in World War II and early career in Texas to his days in the Oval Office. Drawing upon personal diaries and interviews with his advisors and critics, the film will also explore Bush's role as the patriarch of a political family whose influence is unequaled in modern American life.

I have long had an interest in American history, and especially for notable Presidents. President Bush was a man I respected after becoming the director of CIA, through his all-to-short presidency, and his continued gracefulness in retirement from politics. This production by American Experience is very, very well done, and is nothing short of inspiring. History will treat this President Bush well, and PBS has done him justice. If you're looking for an inspiring story of a modern-day role model, you might consider this biography of George H.W. Bush.

The "American Experience" rarely disappoints me, and this is no exception. In my opinion George H W Bush has been wrongly cast aside in comments by political gurus on the effectiveness of recent presidents. Serving in the wake of Ronald Reagan, this is understandable. However, the accomplishments of this good man both before and during his presidency deserve reconsideration in view of our recent history. This film accurately portrays him and should leave the viewer with a renewed sense of his quiet greatness. History will one day look back on his years in the White House with admiration.

This dvd was well made, and was a good American Experience production of an underrated president. My main issue with this dvd was that it said nothing, NOTHING about the First Iraq War. I don't understand how you can make a documentary about a president, who is to be the nation's commander in chief for the military and not say anything about the biggest military action of the 90's under Bush Sr.
I couldn't imagine talking about FDR and not WWII, LBJ and not Vietnam, or Wilson and WWI, but we can talk about George Bush Sr. and not talk about Operation Desert Storm; it's almost like they wanted to ignore it, as if to avoid it.
This is a major failure of this video! If you are looking for a full story of this president watch something else.

This is a very well made documentary. All of the PBS American Experience Presidential biographies are of a high standard and this is no different. A previous reviewer incorrectly stated that there is no mention of the first Gulf War. Perhaps that reviewer should look again at the DVD menu and select Part 2 as apparently she only watched Part 1! Part 2 explores the Gulf War in some detail. I would definitely recommend this DVD to anyone with an interest in Presidential biographies or American politics.
