Description
This objective and candid profile of President Lyndon b. Johnson attempts to define LBJ with respect to the personal and political influences that have affected his career in government. To document this frank portrait, NET cameras go from President Johnson?s hometown of Johnson City, Texas, to Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC, where intimate friends, neighbors, and colleagues give their impressions of Lyndon B. Johnson as a youth, a college student, a congressional leader, a business partner, a politician, and as president. The program?s profile includes never-before televised excerpts and documents President Johnson?s speeches in his early political days; a visit to the LBJ Ranch ? including various rooms inside the President?s home as well as the surrounding property; and a visit to President Johnson?s alma mater, Southwest Texas State Teachers College. Among those who reminisce and talk about President Johnson are: William Deason, a college roommate of President Johnson at southwest Texas State Teachers College, who now operates a radio station in Austin, Texas. Mr. Deason tells of President Johnson?s activities in campus elections. Richard ?Cactus? Pryor, intimate friend of President Johnson and program manager of the Johnson-owned KTBC radio station in Austin, Texas. Mr. Pryor, who has been in charge of entertainment of guests at the LBJ Ranch on many occasions, recalls what happened at the Ranch just before President Kennedy was assassinated. Dean Alfred Noelle of Southwest Texas State Teachers College, who knew President Johnson in his college years and advised him throughout that time. Ronnie Dugger, editor of the Texas Observer in Austin, Texas, who has written many articles for the New York Times and St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Ernest and Marie Hodges, neighbors of President Johnson, with whom the President owns farming equipment. Bill Brammer of Austin, Texas, former aide to Mr. Johnson. Mr. Brammer is the author of the controversial book, ?The Gay Place,? a novel that purports to have President Johnson as its main character. US Representative Wright Patman (D-Texas), who knew President Johnson when he was a youth. The Congressman recalls how President Johnson used to hang around the state legislature and watch his father, Sam Ealy Johnson, Jr., when the assembly convened. Dr. Joseph Frantz of the History department of the University of Texas. LBJ ? AN UNPOSED PROFILE: a 1964 National Educational Television production. Executive Producer: Alvin Perlmutter.
