Movie Info

This documentary contains excerpts from speeches pertaining to some of the most important and famous moments of the presidency of Harry S. Truman. With film footage from the 1940's and 50's, Truman is shown delivering some of his speeches, which have gained more respect and importance in retrospect. These include his pronouncements on the dropping of the atomic bombs; the intervention in response to the invasion of South Korea by communist forces of North Korea; his subsequent firing of General Douglas MacArthur; and Truman's seizure in 1952 of the steel industry to avoid a strike and maintain defense production, an act which the U.S. Supreme Court declared unconstitutional. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter, Rovi
