Editorial Reviews

The youngest president in our nation's history, who brought an unprecedented excitement and power to the office, the life of America s 26th president, Theodore Roosevelt, makes any fiction pale by comparison. His was the life of a magnificent maveric-a man of enormous popularity and legendary achievements. From the sidewalks of New York to the frontiers of Dakota, from the Spanish-American War to World War I, to his dynamic years in the White House, Roosevelt saw it all. Larger than life, Teddy was a true American hero who changed the country as have few other leaders. Directed by Harrison Engle and narrated by George C. Scott, The Indomitable Teddy Roosevelt is a unique, dramatic documentary, combining remarkable film footage of great historical events, meticulous re-creations and the stirring music of John Philip Sousa - also included on a special 31-track CD, Sophisticated Sousa - to create a spectacular visual and musical experience. Presented in its original 1.33:1 aspect ratio and Dolby Digital Sound. Special features include an interview with director Harrison Engle; photo archive; 'Teddyisms,' memorable quotes from T.R.; Sousa biography and soundtrack descriptions; and Roosevelt's 1905 inaugural address. 2 DVDs plus a bonus CD!

The best line from many in this film?
Samuel Ross
The pictures are just amazing as they again wove together real movie footage, pictures and actors into a seamless story of his life.
Lonnie Lewis
Roosevelt really comes alive and the music helps to establish a real sense of America in the early 20th century.

I love this tape! I saw it as an ABC television special over ten years ago. About five years ago I found out that a friend had made a copy of it and managed to talk him into giving it to me. Teddy had a full life and this tape does a good job of fittng it into roughly two hours. The archival photos, pictures, and films are clear and are accurately placed in the historical narative. The Sousa music creates a mood that takes one back to the energetic turn of the 20th century with all its brash color and jingoism. I like this film so much that I show it in its entirety each year in the U.S. course that I teach.

Format: VHS Tape
ABC Presidential documentaries are always stellar efforts and this is no exception. The magnificent life of TR is told is painstaking detail and everything is beautifully photographed and arranged. When the film details TR's childhood asthma, they photograph a small boy, meant to be TR, in a darkened room, as the wind batters the curtains. It's an ethereal moment and makes the viewer think they are in the room with Roosevelt.
TR's entire life is depicted, with generous amounts of time being spent on his early years in New York. But the majority of the program is rightly devoted to TR in the period 1898-1909, where he went from Rough Rider to President. His private side is illuminated and one realizes he was a fascinating, though sometimes infuriating man; stubborn, headstrong, yet brilliant. It's all here: his ability to speak languages, his amazing memory, the fact he read a book every day, his passion for the outdoor life, his years at Harvard. His romances are here as well, including his early passion for eventual wife Edith, whom he threw over for his first wife, Alice. She died on the same day as TR's mother, and this dual blow is examined in detail.
This is a gorgeous film, photographed with care and produced with exquisite flair. If you're not especially interested in Roosevelt, you will be after viewing this documentary. If you are already a fan of TR, this will make you love him all the more.

Format: DVD
A 94-minute historical documentary, THE INDOMITABLE TEDDY ROOSEVELT, Directed and Produced by Harrison Engle, Written by Theodore Strauss, with a beautiful musical score compiled from suites, operas and marches of John Philip Sousa and recorded by the Detroit Concert Band, with narration spoken by George C. Scott, it's quite possibly the best historical documentary I have ever seen-- the first episode of "Unknown Chaplin" being its only close rival in my mind.

As one would expect from such a subject much use is made of silent era film footage. There are clips from fiction films ranging from THE `TEDDY' BEARS (1907) to THE ROUGH RIDERS (1927), and miles of amazing, unfamiliar newsreel, mostly selected with a dual eye upon its content and its pictorial splendor. Most of the footage is fresh to our eyes, being from the long-guarded Roosevelt Memorial Association collection which was assembled and maintained in impeccable condition beginning immediately after TR's death in 1919. Of course there are also stills and some extraordinary moments of re-enactment including one goose-bump shot of TR and family, portrayed almost entirely by his direct descendants, which dissolves eerily into the original group portrait upon which it is based.

It is beautifully structured, inspiring, saddening, everything one would ask of a great film. THE INDOMITABLE THEODORE ROOSEVELT, completed in 1983, is also impeccably produced. The thought and skill and passion in it, the uncompromised quality evident in its every image and sound, make it also a heartbreaking reminder of the glory one aspired to achieve in documentary film before the days of hasty, formulaic and cheaply-produced programs of this sort demanded of struggling producers by cable networks.

I have taught American History for over 30 years. Early in my career, the school in which I taught had a VHS copy. I showed to to my students every year, and it was one of the best days of the year. Roosevelt really comes alive and the music helps to establish a real sense of America in the early 20th century. When I found that it had been re-released, I bought it immediately. Looking at it again after at least 15 years shows that it lost none of the value that I saw in it in the 1980s. It really is a must-see.

It is truly a wonderful presentation of a fascinating President. He has to be on anyone's list as one of the top 5 and by far the most interesting in US History.
The film weaves together well so much real footage along with actors playing short roles. The pictures are just amazing as they again wove together real movie footage, pictures and actors into a seamless story of his life.
Any teacher of middle/high US HIstory should consider showing this to their classroom.
