At the time America was going through its worst economic crisis, Franklin Delano Roosevelt seemed to offer a natural talent for leadership. This film shows how that charismatic quality appealed so much when America lacked direction and vitality. The film also traces the steps Roosevelt took to create a larger federal bureaucracy than had ever existed. Henry Fonda narrates. Part of the "American Parade" series originally produced for CBS News, a set of documentaries about America's history and heritage that features such topics as American presidents, the Industrial Revolution, Walt Whitman and American poetry, Boss Tweed and city government corruption, the settling of Kansas, the American womens movement, and civil rights. 30 minutes, black and white.
