Remarkable in detailing the life and times of Franklin and Eleanor...
25 December 2006 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

FRANKLIN AND ELEANOR was a remarkable television mini-series that topcast BERNARD HERRMANN and JANE Alexander as Franklin Delano Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor--taking them through courtship and marriage to the stormy years of discontent while his political ambitions became known to her (and eventually his indiscretions), as well as the political climate during the early years of his presidency at the height of the Great Depression, followed by the tumultuous war years of World War II.

It never ceases to be endlessly fascinating, treating with respect and dignity the lives of the famous couple and their various dealings with others while he becomes head of the Democratic party and then is elected to be a four-term president during some of the most difficult years in American history.

Production-wise, it's excellent and received many awards and nominations. It should be required viewing for any student of history and dramatically, it is very effective with a fitting background score by John Barry.
