U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt at the conclusion of his nomination acceptance speech to the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia at the Convention Hall, during the 1936 Presidential campaign. Band playing in the background. Posters of President Roosevelt and Vice President Garner on the stage. Roosevelt speaking with Democratic Senate leader Joseph Robinson of Arkansas, after the speech. Roosevelt also conferring with his running mate, Vice-President John N. Garner. The microphones are still on, so the conversation of Roosevelt and those around him can be heard slightly. Also seen is California Senator William Gibbs McAdoo speaking with Roosevelt. The future President wipes his brow with his handkerchief. He turns to his left and says to Missouri Senator James A. Reed, "Jim, get the band to play Auld Lang Syne again" which the band does. Views of the men and women delegates in the convention hall, waving their various state signs.
