Personally produced by 20th-Fox’s studio chief, the Technicolor biography of America’s 28th President was modestly described as the most important motion picture event in 50 years. Due to the film’s running time of 154 minutes, the Roxy’s stage show was trimmed to a patriotic tribute by Fred Waring & His Pennsylvanians.
