Watch Steve Jobs play FDR in Apple film, circa '1984'

Paul McNamara | May 7, 2012
You'll have to go to Buzzblog if you want to see Steve Jobs playfully portraying Franklin Delano Roosevelt - right down to the cigarette holder - it's there in all of its 20-second glory.

Here's what Jobs says into a telephone, face obscured by a desk chair, in his big FDR scene:

"General, you and your brave fighting force have a rendezvous with destiny. Your battle will be long, it will be hard, but it will be won. I am sure your victory will be great."

He then hangs up the phone, turns toward the camera, drops an awful FDR voice and grins:

"Insanely great."

You've got to see it.
