The fascinating tale of the structure often called one of the "Seven Wonders of the Modern World" comes to the screen in a documentary that originally aired as part of PBS's American Experience series. Before the construction of the Golden Gate Bridge, harried hustler and energetic self-promoter Joseph Strauss had never designed or even overseen the construction of such a structure, though after 13 years of political red tape and damaging lawsuits, it was finally time to break ground and put his comprehensive plans to the ultimate test.
