WE PUT HER THERE: THE CONTRIBUTORS
This documentary tells the exciting story of who was involved: hundreds of thousands of ordinary citizens from all walks of life, even children, gave their small earnings to realize Miss Liberty, first in France and then in the U.S. It took 14 years to consummate.
A strong script includes the words of Auguste Bartholdi, her sculptor; hundreds of authentic 19th century pictures show how this historic people-to-people gift came to take her stand in New York harbor.
