101 years ago today, Ronald Wilson Reagan was born in Tampico, Illinois. Ronald Reagan was – and still is – the heart of the modern day conservative movement. President Reagan saw America as a special place, “a shining city on a hill,” and a beacon of freedom for the rest of the world. Many in today’s conservative movement owe a great deal to the man who did not shy away from the conservative fight.
In 2009, Citizens United Productions produced a documentary called Ronald Reagan: Rendezvous With Destiny, hosted by Newt and Callista Gingrich. The film is a feature length documentary that focuses on the three pillars of the Reagan presidency: reviving the American economy, restoring America’s spirit, and challenging the oppression of the Soviet Union. Through interviews with historians, cabinet members, and world leaders, the film examines and celebrates the Great Communicator and his legacy.
Featuring exclusive interviews with former Presidents Vaclav Havel of the Czech Republic and Lech Walesa of Poland, along with Reagan Cabinet and staff members including James Baker, Edwin Meese, Marlin Fitzwater, Richard Perle, William Bennett, and the late Jack Kemp, Rendezvous With Destiny is President Reagan’s story as told by the people who were with him on the front lines of the Reagan Revolution.
