Review:

An adulatory, uncritical retrospective of one of America's most popular presidents, Ronald Reagan: His Life and Legacy provides, in addition to an overarching biography of Reagan's career, video for seven of Reagan's best-known speeches (including his inaugural address, the memorial for the lost of the Challenger space shuttle, his famous "Tear down this wall" speech in Berlin, and his farewell address) and the complete audio for 13 speeches. The program is almost undiluted praise, spending far more time on Reagan's modest Hollywood career than on the Iran/Contra scandal. His Life and Legacy demonstrates his gift as a speechmaker with a knack for simple but sweeping language. It's appropriate that Reagan's presidency is packaged like a movie star's greatest hits; like Madonna or Superman, Reagan was more a media figure than a conventional politician--he was an icon with enormous emotional resonance for his audience. --Bret Fetzer
