The British Polio Fellowship was approached for help with research for this film, which stars Bill Murray as American President Franklin D Roosevelt, living with Polio in the 1930s. The Fellowship was delighted to help with Hyde Park on Hudson, as the film will give a snapshot of Roosevelt's life and show some of the effects of living with Polio.
Fellowship member Mike Egan helped actor Bill Murray prepare for his latest role as President Roosevelt!
Hyde Park on Hudson is scheduled for release in 2013.
