Description
"Time and Chance: Gerald Ford's Appointment with History," adapted in part from James M. Cannon's book by the same title, is a documentary about the man who was never elected to higher office but who served in the presidency for nearly 1,000 days in 1974-77, when the nation was challenged by war, inflation and political turmoil. The 60 -minute film by WGVU Productions traces Ford's formative years in Grand Rapids and chronicles his political career as a thirteen-term congressman, vice president and president. It is the first full-scale documentary of the nation's 38th president. Ford is prominently profiled in the program during the dark days of Watergate and the politically turbulent 1970s. The film also profiles Betty Ford and the role she played as one of the most influential first ladies since Eleanor Roosevelt.
