The two-hour special will air on PBS's "American Experience" next spring. The film -- a collaboration between Burns and O'Neill biographers Arthur and Barbara Gelb -- makes use of interviews and readings from a number of the world's foremost O’Neill scholars, historians, writers, critics and theater artists.
The film is part of a series, "American Visions in Documentary," being organized by Sheila Curran Bernard, the Anschutz Distinguished Fellow in the Program in American Studies. For more information, visit the program's Web site.
