Synopsis

NBC News Presents: Ronald Reagan
Ronald Reagan was one of the most popular and most controversial political figures of his time. To many, he was a great communicator who helped bring America together, confronted Communism, and made a nation believe in itself again. To others, he was a man out of touch with many of his constituents who often ignored questions he couldn't answer, avoided problems he couldn't solve, and deepened the nation's social and economic divide. But by any yardstick, he was one of the most influential men of the second half of the 20th Century, and this home video release from NBC News examines his remarkable life and many accomplishments. NBC News Presents: Ronald Reagan features archival footage from Reagan's two terms as president, interviews with his friends and colleagues, a look at his romance with wife Nancy Reagan, and a salute to his career as an actor (including a complete 1957 episode of General Electric Theater featuring Reagan). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
