The third video release from Paladin Communications - extending
the story of George Washington. This follows the films When the
Forest Ran Red ($19.95 DVD) and George Washington’s First War ($19.95
Pursuit of Honor is the most ambitious independent documentary
ever attempted about George Washington and explores two dynamic
- Washington’s belief in Providence, which—so he supposed—allowed
him to escape death many times.
- Washington’s growth of character; in pursuit of honor he shed
the shallowness of youth and in time became a complete gentleman.
George Washington made himself into a man capable of founding
the most powerful nation in the world.
The film explores Washington’s early military career in the French
& Indian War, his romances, his family life, and his management
of Mount Vernon, and connects these experiences to his actions in
the Revolution and his two terms as the first President of the United
States. This is an accessible George Washington—not the cold and
aloof “man-in-a-Washington-suit” as he is often portrayed.
The film provides viewers with a backstage pass into the private
world of George Washington, from his love of Sally Fairfax to his
marriage to Martha Custis, from farm fields to battlefields, from
imperial rule to the dawn of liberty. Come meet the Founding Father
you never knew.
85 minutes plus bonus features $19.95 DVD.
