Vaughn Captures The Man Behind The FDR Persona
4 November 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

FDR: That Man in the White House unfolds the tale of Franklin Delano Roosevelt.It stars Robert Vaughn.He plays FDR, in wheel chair with cigarette, telling jokes and the story of his life which highlights the highs and lows of his existence that include his tenure in the Oval Office and his life as a member of the disabled community.

FDR: That Man in the White House was interesting.Inspite the fact that there is only one actor involved,it was absorbing and engaging as Vaughn truly captured the persona behind FDR and he makes it interesting from beginning to end.In summary,get to know more about the 32nd President of the United States in this teleplay.
