Eric Sevareid's Not So Wild a Dream
- 1988 ----- color ----- 57 min ----- vhs
As a young journalist, Eric Sevareid was a devout pacifist and isolationist. At the invitation of Edward R. Murrow, Sevareid became a European correspondent for CBS Radio in Paris in the days just before the rise of Adolf Hitler and the Third Reich. It was during this sad and shocking period of the rise of fascism that Sevareid radically changed his world view. Convinced of the necessity for American participation in Europe, he helped persuade his reluctant countrymen to enter the fight for a worthy cause. This production, based on his best-selling memoir, compares one man's experience with the political evolution of millions of Americans.
