Editorial Reviews

He personified America at the turn of the last century--confident, exuberant, involving-but suffered from hidden demons. He was Teddy Roosevelt, or TR, heroic figure of boundless energy and bleak emotions. Family letters and diaries, authentic film footage and interviews with family members and others profile an ambitious man: fearless in combat, loving and generous with family, and unafraid to take on powerful financial interests.

Easily my favorite in the American Experience presidential series, this biography of Theodore Roosevelt is informative, enlightening, challenging, touching, and even inspirational. Narrated with gusto by the late TR buff, Jason Robards, and featuring interviews with noted Roosevelt historians and key family members, this is an exciting journey through the life of the first modern American president.

At no point in covering TR's life is there necessity to spice things up or add color. His story is a dizzying, wild ride that parallels the expansion of the nation, its influence, and its lifestyles from the Gilded Age of the Second Industrial Revloution to the War to End All Wars. Roosevelt was a precocious asthmatic child with insatiable curiosity and a love of taxidermy; a boxer at Harvard; a state legislator; rancher; sheriff; nationally respected naval historian; big game hunter and authoritative ornitholgist; a reformist New York City police commissioner; the Assistant Secretary of the Navy; a heroic volunteer colonel in the Spanish American War; Governor of New York; Vice President; and (upon the assassination of William McKinley) the youngest man ever to become President. All before his 43rd birthday!

You owe it to yourself to view this film and learn from the life of this incredible human being who was described as "a steam engine in trousers." He was a bit eccentric at times but he was NEVER boring. His life is certainly motivation to take life by the horns and live it to the fullest.

This documentary is superb in bringing the story of Theodore Roosevelt to life. It covers TR from birth to death and does much to not only document his life, but to explain why he became to powerful figure he did. Exceptional.

Superb documentary from beginning to end. If you enjoy watching PBS documentaries, this is a must see. Especially to those who enjoy history. Very informative information about Roosevelt that not many people know about. A must see.

Great price too. Quick delivery. TR - a great President who would have outraged his party today. He wouldn't have had any time for them either.

How can you not love a terrific American character narrated by Academy Award winner Jason Robards? If you are a teacher, this is the perfect supplement to teaching early 20th Century American history. TR is a very good story of persistence and the effective use of power. Loved it! PBS just makes great documentaries!
