Ford: The man and the machine (1987)

Reviewed by Jason S. Lockard

Biographical films are a great why to enjoy the life of interesting people. Well, Henry Ford was one such interesting man and in 1987 his life was put on the small screen in a made-for-TV mini-series. Now this mini-series is available on DVD thanks to the good folks at Mill Creek Entertainment.

This mini-series follows the life and times of Henry Ford. From his humble beginnings as Detroit mechanic to the world's richest man. Ford let nothing, including his family, stand in the way of his vision. This is his fascinating story of invention, struggle, personal conflict and controversy. In this biopic you will see the highs and lows of his life and get a peek at the man inside.

Cliff Robertson gives one of the best performances of his career as Henry Ford and Hope Lang shines as Clara Ford. Everyone in the cast is great. The film is just an inspiring film.

I really enjoyed this film. The quality of the transfer is really good. I highly recommend this film for biopic fans. Head over to today and find out how you can get a copy for yourself.
