The original release sheet reads: "The Dwight D. Eisenhower Story" deals exclusively with the general's life before becoming president, with emphasis on his military career.In as much as his life itself is straightforward, with a drama uniquely its own, the narration by Raymond Massey which accompanies this pictorial record is also straightforward and simple, setting forth the facts, and letting the facts and the picture tell the story. In telling this story of a great American military leader, THE BIG PICTURE camera visits Abilene, Kansas, and the Eisenhower Museum. By using the murals within the museum, the film dissolves into flashbacks in the life of a man who is at once a symbol and a leader of one of the greatest military victories ever won by the United States of America. The dramatic high point comes with the victorious adventure D-Day, and reflects on the incalculable importance of its outcome on the entire world, and on the responsibility it imposed on one man --Dwight D. Eisenhower. FOR MORE INFORMATION
