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 were 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.
