@Judaline  ThankYou-smiley.giffor that link.  I bookmarked it for future references.

 

I was dumbfounded when I saw that submarine pop up in NY.  That was a wtf moment for me.  I thought the writers went to far this time!  Boy was I wrong about that.  And it wasn't the first time it happened. Smiley Surprisedfaint.gif

 

FDR was a bonifide "Playa"  who had it going on from a wheel chair at that!  I bet many a men watching this series are taking notes. whistling.gif

@Mz iMac  I only heard about the sub about 10 years ago. I asked people why there wasn't any talk about it, but they didn't know about it either. All I heard was 'a submarine was sited off the coast of Long Island.' Evidently it was old news and everyone who knew it didn't make much of it. I thought it was pretty scary that it could reach our shores and why wasn't our country on alert at that time? Guess FDR was distracted.

FDR died in his mid 60s.

Yeah, that's what I thought. I'll bet that's a pretty rare photo.

The actress playing Eleanor Roosevelt on this show looks more like Mamie Eisenhower than she does Eleanor.

I love this program and I think the acting is wonderful.  I love PBS anything basically.

For real! 

 

And FDR wished he was as good looking as Kyle McLaughlin.

I enjoyed the finale especially the scenes where they mixed the "real" movies & photos of the royal family as they were returning to Norway.  Also, the scenes at the very end & during the credit roll.
