Give ’em Hell, Harry! is written by Samuel Gallu. Its April 17, 1975, premiere was hosted by Truman’s daughter Margaret, and attended by President Gerald Ford.
“In these especially, dangerously partisan times, it’s good to see a former Republican congressman taking on the role of Truman with all the respect and dignity that it requires. Truman would often rail against the opposition but find ways to work with them for the good of the country. It’s a story worth telling and worth hearing.”
