American Experience: Mount Rushmore
Tuesday, July 2 at 9:00 p.m.
High on a granite cliff in South Dakota’s Black Hills tower the huge carved faces of four American presidents.
Together they constitute the world’s largest sculpture. The massive tableau inspires awe and bemusement. How, and when, was it carved?
Who possessed the audacity to create such a gargantuan work? The story of Mount Rushmore’s creation is as bizarre and wonderful as the monument itself.
Michael Murphy narrates.
