Betty Ford: The Real Deal

2009 NR

With unflinching honesty, this biographical portrait examines the life and influence of former First Lady Betty Ford, revealing a woman whose public battles with alcoholism and breast cancer changed the face of presidential politics. A self-identified feminist, Ford never held back when it came to standing up for what she believed in -- even when her husband and the Republican Party disagreed. Actress Jane Alexander narrates.
