David Hall seemed to lead a charmed life. He possessed the looks and skills to be a natural in politics and made it to the governor's mansion at the age of 40, winning the closest gubernatorial race in Oklahoma history. During his "people's administration" Hall emphasized education, highways, agriculture and law and order. He seemed destined for higher office until scandal cut short his political career and forever changed his life.
Within months of leaving office, Oklahoma's 20th governor was in federal prison. After his conviction, Hall left Oklahoma and remained publicly silent about the events that brought a stunning end to his political career. Until now.
Premiering on June 7, 2010, David Hall talks to Dick Pryor about his meteoric rise and dramatic fall in the new OETA production, "A Conversation With....David Hall." For the first time, Hall shares his side of one of the most fascinating political stories in Oklahoma history.
