Audience Reviews for LBJ: The Early Years
Solid recap of LBJ's climb obviously told in shorthand-a necessary evil due to the constraints of a TV format. Still you do get a feeling for the hard charging bull from Texas who confounded many when he emerged as a great advocate for civil rights. Quaid is excellent in the lead, a very good actor whose reputation has now been sullied by bizarre off screen behavior. He and Lupone who are seemingly an odd match work well together as Johnson and Lady Bird, who even though they forged a strong bond themselves were an unusual match as is shown here. For history buffs and bio fans a worthy entry.
