"His Words Once Rocked the Political Establishment. Now, More Than Ever, They May Surprise You."
Producer, narrator and granddaughter C.C. Goldwater takes viewers on a cinematic journey into the life of Barry Goldwater in her first film, Mr. Conservative: Goldwater on Goldwater. The film reveals Goldwater as a man either glorified or vilified by the American public. It traces the roots of Goldwater's conservative philosophy, conveys how he united the conservative movement to lead the Republican Party into a new generation of politics and demonstrates how his consistently Libertarian mindset led him to diverge from the Conservative party orthodoxy in the '80s and '90s. As journalist George Will has said of Goldwater's pivotal presidential race against Lyndon B. Johnson, "People say Goldwater lost in 1964. Some of us think Goldwater won. It just took 16 years to count the votes. In 1980, we finally got the results in. And conservatism had won."

At the same time, the film demonstrates that Goldwater was personally liked by politicians on both sides of the aisle, in an era when there seemed to be more civil discourse between parties than there is today. To tell the story of this multi-faceted man, C.C. Goldwater includes home movies, intimate family stories, Barry Goldwater's own extensive photography, archival footage of his public life, and interviews about his political and social life with prominent political faces from the past and present. Among those interviewed by C.C. Goldwater and director Julie Anderson are Hillary Clinton, Edward Kennedy, John McCain, John Warner, James Carville, Al Franken, John Dean, Ben Bradlee, Helen Thomas, Walter Cronkite, Andy Rooney, George Will, Bob Schieffer, Robert MacNeil, various Goldwater family members and members of Goldwater's personal staff.

"...a plethora of engaging family footage...  Irv Letofsky, Hollywood Reporter
"A beautiful and illuminating job of setting the record straight...  Tom Shales, Washington Post

Editor's Note
Julie Anderson, who is the granddaughter of former U.S. Senator Barry M. Goldwater, directs this HBO feature on the life of a man who sharply divided the country. Goldwater ran for president in 1964 after making his name first as a businessman and then as a senator. Although he never made it to the Oval Office, and Goldwater's conservative values may have been ahead of their time, his supporters were delighted when Ronald Reagan took many of Goldwater's beliefs and turned them into a successful run for the presidency. To tell this fascinating tale, Anderson's film draws on rare archival material, including home movies and interview footage with a broad range of influential figures.

Professional Reviews

Variety 9 of 10
It's a good bet Barry Goldwater would have never imagined a film portrait such as "Mr. Conservative: Goldwater on Goldwater" being the one likely to seal him in the public's imagination. The personal and confessional tone of "Mr. Conservative: Goldwater on Goldwater" -- stemming from granddaughter CC's direct involvement as producer, interviewer and narrator -- would have made the non-touchy-feely late senator fidget...Response to the pic from GOP pundits and opinionmakers will provide a telling indicator of the current political climate. Walter Cronkite overstates the case that the older Goldwater turned liberal, while George Will is more on point, noting that what changed wasn't Goldwater but the GOP's extreme shift toward moralistic conservatism...Doc contains a fine balance of personal talking-heads segments with rare archive footage, such as behind-the-scenes footage of Goldwater and family during the '64 GOP convention. - Robert Koehler
