"Based on director Bob Fosse's own extravagant life, this vibrant and spectacular film follows Fosse's alter ego. Joe Gideon in his relentless pursuit of sex, drugs and self-destruction. His womanizing both supports and debilitates him as he juggles his mistress, ex-wife and beloved daughter. Hovering over all of his excess is an angel. The proceedings are set amid rapturous dream sequences, lavish production numbers and fabulous sets"--Container

Give 'em hell Harry( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 83 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 1961 David Susskind had an edgy, one-on-one conversation with retired 33rd president of the United States, Harry S. Truman. They covered controversial subjects, including conversations with Sir Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin. Most of Susskind's questioning centered around presidential history and how media tried to influence politics, including its commander and chief's. Truman recalls how "these shenanigans" had been going on since George Washington took office. Truman never let it influence him, and remarked that television was helpful as there was no editor between himself and his audience. Truman's great leadership skills are summed up in his response to Susskind's question, "Are there any decisions you made that you now regret?" Truman's reply: "No. The worst thing you can do is make no decision. If a decision is wrong, then just make another one to fix it."
