Description by OLDIES.com:
Jean Stapleton was nominated for an Emmy (1982, Outstanding Lead Actress In a Limited Series or a Special) for her portrayal of Eleanor Roosevelt in this made-for-TV biography, first telecast May 12, 1982. The film picks up Mrs. Roosevelt's storied life after the 1945 death of her husband, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt. At the request of new president Truman, Eleanor serves as a United Nations delegate, spending much of her time tilting with dedicated anti-FDR politico John Foster Dulles (E.G. Marshall). She goes on to spearhead the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, proving to Dulles - and to the Soviet delegate (Freddie Jones) - that she's anything but soft on Communism. Newly remastered.
A civil rights crusader and the first woman delegate to the United Nations, Eleanor Roosevelt has held her position as one of the most admired women in history. In this portrayal, see the real Eleanor, the woman who inspired the world with her courage and compassion during the dark days of the Great Depression and WWII.
