The Democrat and the DictatorStreaming Video - 2012
It was as if history had staged a morality play. Two gladiators of light and darkness, Franklin Roosevelt and Adolf Hitler, came to power within weeks of each other, faced off in a contest of global warfare, and died in the same month. In doing so, they embodied the very essences of democracy and dictatorship. Through the spellbinding appeal of decades-old film, Bill Moyers traces the childhoods and early careers of both leaders, illustrates the paths by which they rose to respective pinnacles of power, and shows how each was a master communicator and stylist of ideas, imprinting an entire generation with their actions and ideologies.
