Studes Terkel

Listening To America
"This documentary takes a fond and illuminating look back at one of America's most influential authors and media personalities."

This documentary is a fine introduction into one of the greatest American personalities. Studs Terkel did not shy away from controversy. "Studs" was responsible for providing a forum for those who were not heard, for those who lived and worked day in and day out, for those who lived the hopes and dreams of the average Americans. Throughout his career in television and as a writer Studs Terkel brought home the reality of American life. His books, TV and radio programs were ground breaking. ~Mike
