FDR Home Movie

A colour home movie featuring footage of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt has surfaced online.

Shot by his son-in-law John Boettiger, who worked for the Motion Picture Association of America, it features some revealing images of the 32nd President of the United States, including a boating trip and his Third Inauguration in 1941.

The quality is strikingly good and gives a vivid glimpse of one the key political figures of the 20th century.
