He led America's battles against the Depression and the Axis powers - and won. But first Franklin Delano Roosevelt fought a personal battle against polio that would either destroy him - or arm him for greatness. This powerful film of Dore Schary's long-running play is an intimate, admiring profile in courage. Ralph Bellamy reprises his dynamic, Tony-winning stage portrayal of the future President and Greer Garson is his devoted, warbly-voiced wife Eleanor. Both are uncannily true in their roles and acclaim followed: Garson earned Golden Globe and National Board of Review Best Actress Awards as well as one of the movie's four Oscar nominations.* With exteriors filmed at Campobello and Hyde Park and interiors staged on uncanny duplications of the real-life Roosevelt homes, Sunrise at Campobello shines eloquently and movingly.
