Missouri: Portrait of a People

Missouri: Portrait of a People

CINE Golden Eagle Award
"Highly Recommended. One of the oldest forms of entertainment is celebrated in this documentary. Myths, legends, and gossip come alive in the mouths of gifted storytellers. It also serves a practical purpose, keeping tradition and unwritten history viable. Comedy and honesty mix in the tales of ancestors." -New York Times
Narrated by John Forsythe, this classic documentary's focus is on Missouri, a state with a remarkable history. As we discover, to truly know a people it is simply not enough to review the history of their government, their battles, their territorial gains and economic development, but also their greatness is reflected in their art: in literature, painting, sculpture, music and architecture. And although it may not surprise many Missourians, it may amaze viewers how many Missourians have played an important role in America's history; notables include Harry S. Truman, Mark Twain, and Scott Joplin. By focusing on the enduring works of Missouri's famous artists, musicians and architects, we see a tangible portrait that continues to exist throughout Missouri today - a portrait, uniquely Missourian, but one that all Americans can also share. Produced by Master's Mark, Inc. 98/98DE IJSCA 30 min.
Also Narrated by John Forsythe: Song of the Basque; A Question of Duty (Animal Conservation)
