Tennessee Johnson Movie
- gloria miller
I recently watched this movie on Turner Classic Movies and it was a great movie. Since I was not into history in school, I have since become very interested in all history at the ripe old age of 87. I thought this was one of the best movies and woiuld like to have a copy on DVD to keep for my family to cherish. Surely hope all of these good reviews will bring all of us good luck. I would appreciate being notified if and when it is out on DVD.

Andrew Johnson is a long lost relative of our family and I would love to have a copy of this movie. He was an important part of history as well and I would like my children and grandchildren to understand who he was and his place in history.
I enjoyed this movie very much and would like to own a copy. Not much of a review, but hope it says something that I would buy it if available
This is a watchable film. I don't know how historically accurate it is, but I did enjoy learning more about our past. It is interesting that they chose not to show Lincoln except in a photo. I think because most actors have a hard time doing him justice. It was hard seeing Barrymore as such an unlikeable character. I generally like him in his roles, but Stevens was a bit much.
Back to the Courage of Former Days
- Bonnie Barsness
I think we need more of this kind of portrayal of courage to "fight for the right". When westood strong in WW 2 our country did well. Everyone was trying to do his part in the war effort. I joined in upon my high school graduation in 1945- working in a Portland, Ore. Shipyard. There I met my husband-to-be. He was from Minn. and I from Tenn. originally.We have been married 64 yrs. this fall. I close with a verse from the bible- "Righteousness exalts a nation; but sin is a reproach to any people." Proverbs 14:34
great hx lesson
tuned in to movie in progress but got caught up in this history that I was not familiar with. thouroghly enjoyed and reminded me of the many times in our history when our republic was challenged and yet we survive!
NOW, MORE THAN EVER!
In these uncertain times, it is most appropriate to be reminded of the basic workings of our government, its flaws and its virtues, as well as the charges imposed on it by the Constitution and the American people. We need all the encouragement we can get and the reminder that one man can make a difference is critical. Despite the need for movie theatrics, the issues covered in this movie are true. Please run it again....soon.
