The Nine Lives of Marion Barry (2009)

Many people remember Marion Barry as the philandering drug-addled mayor of the nation’s capital. He’s the poster boy for corruption, a pariah. Yet to others, Marion Barry is a folk hero who has dominated Washington D.C. city politics for over 40 years. Today, Barry is once again in the political limelight. Who is Marion Barry, really? A hero? A scoundrel? For the first time, Marion Barry: Not Down for the Count reveals the complete unforgettable story. Written by Toby Oppenheimer
