Love Under Fire [electronic resource]: The Story of Bertha and Potter Palmer

Turn of the century Chicago was a wild, marshy, muddy town. For many travelers headed to the West Coast, it was an outpost to pass through on the way to anywhere else. But a few industrious individuals like Potter Palmer, could see Chicago as a place of opportunity. Love Under Fire is the inspirational true story of Chicago's first power couple, Bertha and Potter Palmer. Together, Bertha and Potter were instrumental in helping Chicago rise from the ashes of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. The film features interviews with: Potter Palmer IV, great grandson of Bertha and Potter Palmer; Sally Sexton Kalmbach, author of The Jewel of the Gold Coast: Mrs. Potter Palmer's Chicago; and Ken Price, historian and Director of Public Relations for the Palmer House Hilton.
