Description by Warner Home Video:
The director's son put together this outstanding documentary of his father's life and work. In addition to interviews with actors and contemporaries (Fred Astaire, Warren Beatty, Frank Capra, Cary Grant, Katherine Hepburn, John Huston, Joel McCrea, Alan Pakula, Ginger Rogers, Elizabeth Taylor, and others), the film features behind the scenes home movies. Stevens was also assigned by Eisenhower to film WWII and the documentary contains highlights from this spectacular footage - the only color footage shot of D-Day, the march through Paris, and the liberation of Dachau.
