Cast & Crew
Thomas P O'neill
A documentary about the upset victory of Harry Truman over Thomas Dewey in the election of 1948. Dewey was considered such a shoo-in that many people who would have voted for him didn't bother going the polls, providing Truman with a narrow margin of victory. The program captures the event with newsreels and early television film, interspersed with interviews of campaign staffers and political reporters who covered the election.
