For weeks, everyone who knows that I portray TR has been contacting me to remind me of Ken Burns PBS series on The Roosevelt’s. I am as excited to see it as anyone, as my research is so focused on the man I portray that I seldom get to research the dynamics of the “other players” – Eleanor and Franklin. I am eager to learn about the family on the “Hyde Park” side.
Ken Burns and his team do an amazing job of condensing important historical moments into entertaining clips that give you a glimpse into history. Many of the photographs they are able to assemble are rare archives of a lost time that truly give you a sense of the past in a meaningful way. I recommend everyone take the time to watch this great show and learn more about the family that we hold as true American leaders.
