Ronald Reagan: A Tribute traces the rise of this unlikely politician, from his early years as a successful Hollywood actor to his six terms as president of the Screen Actors Guild. These telling clips reveal the charm, insight, and common-sense wisdom that compelled Reagan to seek, and win, the governorship of California in 1966 - and later brought him all the way to the Oval Office.
This program includes highlights from rare McCarthy-era hearings, the heated 1966 California gubernatorial race, Reagan's fiery acceptance of the Republican presidential nomination, a press conference with Frank Sinatra and Dean Martin, oath of office and inaugural remarks, State of the Union addresses, and Reagan's formal farewell to the American people.
"You don't become President of the United States. You are given temporary custody of an institution called the presidency...It is a sacred trust and an honor beyond words or measure." (Ronald Reagan)
