This review is from: American Experience: Henry Ford (DVD)
Stunning portrait of this odd man, rising from the farm to become the richest man in America if not the world, but unconcerned about this fortune.
At the end, building a Disneyland of fantasy from his early years, complete with the china his mother once had, very moving, and sad.
He was anti-Semitic and anti-intellectual. Yet his court-adduced ignorance (in a libel case) only made him more popular with the masses.
Watch this film, read the Stephen Watts biography, on which it is based, to study the genius of this unique American, our greatest industrialist, who ushered in the decline of the 19th Century, and himself escaped from it, after driving his only son to his early death, in his own fantasy land of his early years.
