I finally had a chance to watch this HBO Production of FDR's battle with polio. Besides great acting by the major players, it focuses on a topic previously pushed to the side when examining FDR's life. One of the first TV miniseries I remember watching besides Roots was Eleanor and Franklin. So, I found it quite interesting that Jane Alexander, having played Eleanor in the 1970s, was now playing Franklin's mother. This also reminds me of the controversy surrounding the FDR Memorial and whether or not it portrayed FDR as disabled.
