Editorial Reviews

He single-handedly saved the U.S. from bankruptcy on two occasions, but was often accused of being a monopolist. He wielded as much power as the president and turned Wall Street into his personal playground. John Pierpont Morgan had an aptitude for acquisition. He assembled one of America's largest fortunes and purchased an art collection to rival any in the world. BIOGRAPHY® narrates the compelling story of this celebrated dealmaker and money-magnate. See rare footage of the financier on Wall Street and trace his rise to power and prominence through interviews with biographers and historians. Hear stories of idiosyncratic brokerages and take a privileged glimpse into Morgan's private life. From his rise to power to his legendary battles with Theodore Roosevelt, BIOGRAPHY® presents the riveting story of J. PIERPONT MORGAN, one of the most successful men of the 20th century. DVD Features: Interactive Menus; Scene Selection

3.0 out of 5 stars Morgan's Biography Missing One Big Player November 11, 2008
A&E's Biograghy of Pierpont Morgan is an excellent account of Morgan's life as told by many biographers. Yet it is missing the huge role that Anthony Drexel played in his shaping of Morgan's life and business career. Tony Drexel took Peirpont on as a partner in Drexel & Co., already a well established banking house, which had ties to Junius Morgan in Europe. It was Drexel that purchased the land for Pierpont in New York and he served as a role model and the principal decision maker in the combined firm. Not until after Drexel's death, when Pierpont was 56 years old, did the Drexel, Morgan & Co. bank get renamed to J.P. Morgan as we know it today.

After watching the biography or reading "The House of Morgan", I'd encourage you to read Rottenberg's, "The Man Who Made Wall Street".

4.0 out of 5 stars Emperor Indeed! July 13, 2014
By Andy
Verified Purchase
I learned a lot in a short time about one of the greatest bankers in the world. I really enjoyed the photographs of him. . . especially his problematic nose. Despite his nose he, apparently, was quite the ladies' man...but then he was very rich. He saved the US economy before there was a central bank.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, but - April 29, 2014
The DVD biography was interesting, but lacked enough detail on exactly how he built his fortune for it to meet my expectations. Guess I'll have to read the book!
