American Experience: Jimmy Carter
- Rated UNR
- Genre: Special Interest-Politics
- Release Date: 3/7/2006
Peanut farmer turned president, Jimmy Carter came to office on a wave of anti-corruption sentiment. However, good intentions and clean government soon got mired in inflation and recession. Although Carter was crucial to the Camp David Accords for Middle Eastern peace (which ultimately helped earn him the Nobel Prize for Peace), the Iran hostage crisis helped lose him the presidency. In retirement, though, Carter has built a legacy of fighting poverty and promoting worldwide peace. 2002/PG/color/3 hrs/NR/fullscreen.
