One of the most influential and controversial figures of the 20th century, Henry Ford is the fascinating subject of this Biography by A&E. His pioneering efforts not only led to the creation of a self-propelled means of locomotion, but also to the invention of modern mass production. With the introduction of the Model T in 1908 came the idea of greater personal freedom and mobility. Within 10 years, half of all cars in the United States were Model Ts, making Henry Ford not only wealthy, but hugely influential. This documentary explores the life and myth of a man whose legacy is still with us to this day.
