Art-For-Art’s-Sake Theatre: Truman

Time once again for our usual midweek feature.

This week we present the 1995 HBO film Truman, starring Gary Sinise as Harry S Truman, the haberdasher from Independence, Missouri, who became the 33rd President of the United States, and Diana Scarwid as his wife, the former Elizabeth Virginia “Bess” Wallace. As the Nation approaches its 238th birthday, this remarkable account, which runs for two hours and eleven minutes, provides an account of a critical era in our history, and the response of a man who had greatness thrust upon him.
