Overview

Biography: Gerald R. Ford - Healing the Presidency

Gerald Ford became President of the United States in 1974, when Richard Nixon was forced to resign in disgrace over the Watergate scandal. The country was in shock; faith in government was at an all-time low. This biography shows how Ford's ascendancy to the office helped heal the nation. Although his pardon of Nixon was controversial, it put the ugly affairs of the Nixon administration behind the presidency and the country. The documentary looks at the many contributions that Ford made to the American legacy. Archival news footage of Ford and his era show the nation on the cusp of a new optimism. Interviews with family, friends, and political insiders reveal the man and assess his accomplishments in those difficult times. ~ Rose of Sharon Winter
