Biographical drama on Margaret Bourke-White who is best known as the first foreign photographer permitted to take pictures of Soviet Industry, the first female war correspondent (and the first female permitted to work in combat zones) and the first female photographer for Henry Luce's Life magazine, where her photograph appeared on the first cover. She died of Parkinson's disease about eighteen years after she developed her first symptoms.

Double Exposure was the TNT networks first feature film, and deservedly one of the highest rated tv movies at the time. This biography of acclaimed photographer Margaret Bourke White covers her war years as well as her turbulent relationship with writer Erskine Caldwell(well played by Frederic Forest). The movie is brilliantly written and beautifully shot...the scenes of Bourke-Whites and Caldwells trip across depression era US are deeply moving. The earlier scenes wonderfully portray and capture some of Bourke-Whites famous photographs. I cannot praise Farrah Fawcett enough - this has to be one of her best performances and she won the Cable Ace Best Actress award for her role. In fact, although it was made for the small screen it plays like a big screen feature. WHere is the DVD? This film deserves a wider audience.

The focus of this movie is more about Margaret Bourke-White's rocky relationship with second husband Erskine Caldwell than about her life as a whole. There is noting about her childhood, family life or how she first got a start in photography. I was expecting this movie to showcase more of her life and how she got to be who she was. Though they make it clear that her name was "Margaret Bourke-White" through redundant reputation of her name and that she was a photographer, you still barely know to what lengths or what trials she went through too obtain the status she deserves and now receives. There are only brief comments regarding her being a woman doing a "man's" work but nothing about her struggle to get where she did. There are a few short clips that point out a few of the risks she took to get a photograph and they do toss in some of her famous photographs but they are plopped in the movie like an afterthought.

The one and only thing you learn about Ms. Bourke-White is that she had 2 loves. Erskine Caldwell and photography. In the end, photography won. But there is very little in this movie regarding her life before she met Erskine Caldwell or after her divorce. So if you're looking for a movie on a relationship between a photographer and writer, this wasn't bad but if you're looking for a movie about the life of Margaret Bourke-White you will be disappointed with this movie.

I really wouldn't call this the "story" of Margaret Bourke-White.
