The Roosevelt Story – Inside the Archives: FDR and the Politics of Celebrity
We were completely entertained filming Acting Director Bill Harris with these Glamorous Celebrities’ archival letters. You can tell he loves this topic and we hope you’ll enjoy watching this quick edition of The Roosevelt Story.
