it is on DVD!
8 December 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In response to the poster above, the movie is available on DVD through Amazon. I just got my copy the other day. I was barely in high school when I first saw this movie on TV and I remember being mesmerized by Stapleton's portrayal of the former First Lady. It's a movie that must have impacted me greatly as later in life I felt myself constantly drawn to Mrs Roosevelt and her prodigious work on behalf of human rights and the improvement of people's lives everywhere. Though the movie feels a bit dated by our standards, the performances by Stapleton and the rest are spot on and compelling. This is really a movie that must be savored in conjunction with any of the excellent documentaries done on Eleanor Roosevelt's life by the History Channel and American Experience
