Before there was television, Louis de Rochemont’s film series March of Time brought news of the world to American movie houses. He was the most-watched film producer of the 1930’s and ’40’s as he reset the terms of the American documentary. Larger than life, Louis championed the dispossessed and did as much as any elected official to end U.S. isolationism and propel America into WW II.
