Jean Stapleton's tour-de-force, as she becomes Eleanor Roosevelt, "The World's Savior of Human Rights."
This complete study of Eleanor Roosevelt and her appointment to the United States Delegation to the United Nations concentrates on the capabilities of the Eleanor Roosevelt that the entire world remembers. The shyness and spunk of the Woman who brought Marian Anderson to sing at the Lincoln Memorial as a National protest to the Daughters of the American Revolution, is portrayed incredibly by Jean Stapleton. She seems to have the ability to morph herself into the part. I have only my BETA copy made from the original broadcast, but I love her asides to E. G. Marshall, who handles the imperious John Foster Dulles role like no other. The dialogue nuances can be savored, such as when the "Queen" is rolling in the transatlantic Eleanor observes Dulles entering the dining room and says, "Oh, Mr. Dulles, you must have the croissants, they are just oozing with butter" This treasure must be brought back in DVD format, or at least shown on National television. Perhaps for the 55th anniversary of her historic achievement: The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which is the prime subject of this film.
