J.C. Leyendecker: The Great American Illustrator

2002 Rated NR 45m

Paying tribute to the life and career of reclusive Saturday Evening Post illustrator J.C. Leyendecker, this documentary sheds light on a man whose own accomplishments were often overshadowed by those of his onetime protégé, Norman Rockwell. Over the course of creating some 300 covers for the venerable magazine, Leyendecker tackled a range of complex social issues, from women's fight for the right to vote to the toppling of Nazi Germany.
