"Mr. Rockefeller, your fortune isrolling up like an avalanche! You must distribute it faster than itgrows! If you do not, it will crush you and your children and yourchildren's children!"
The Rev. Frederick Gates, hired by John D. Rockefeller to guide his philanthropy
"The Rockefellers" is the saga of four generations of a legendary American family whose name is synonymous with great wealth.
Thestorybegins in the Christian revivalist fervor of the 1830s with amarriageof opposites: Eliza Davison, a pious young woman, and "Devil Bill"Rockefeller, swindler, snake-oil salesman, and eventually,bigamist.Their son, John D. Rockefeller, created an industrial empire and apersonal fortune on a scale the world had never known. He ruthlesslycrushed his competitors in the process, alienating the public andleaving a stain on the family name. His dutiful son, John D.Jr., was aself-sacrificing young man who devoted his life to redeeming hisfamily's reputation. Junior's five sons scaled the heights of theAmerican century. One, Nelson, reached highest, exposing the veryprivate Rockefellers once again to the harsh judgment of publicopinion. In the 1960s, a fourth generation of Rockefellers "theCousins" rebelled against their family, which had come to personifywhat was then known as "the establishment."
With unprecedentedaccess to the Rockefeller family and their archives, producersElizabeth Deane ("The Kennedys") and Adriana Bosch ("Reagan") havecreated a complete documentary portrait of this renowned dynasty. "TheRockefellers" features on-camera interviews with Junior's two survivingsons, Laurance and David, and six of the Cousins generation:StevenRockefeller, Rodman Rockefeller (who died in May 2000), AbbyO'Neill, David Rockefeller Jr., Peggy Dulany, and the Honorable JohnD.Rockefeller IV; revealing home movies; and interviews withhistorians, biographers, and others close to the family.
