COVER STORY: The Herbert Hoover you didn’t know
Herbert Hoover had been president for less than a year when the Crash of 1929 initiated the Great Depression, an epochal event in American history that would place his name near the bottom of presidential rankings. But the engineer and business magnate, who made several fortunes in his 20s, is also remembered as a great humanitarian for feeding several million starving Belgians during World War I, and for introducing a variety of innovations in American life, from standardized traffic lights to milk cartons. Mo Rocca examines Hoover’s remarkable rise (from humble beginnings to the White House) and his remarkable fall.

MUSIC: Janis Joplin
A new book about the rock and blues singer presents a portrait of a gifted, complex and challenging artist who became an iconic trailblazer during her 27 years. Anthony Mason talks with music journalist Holly George-Warren about her biography, “Janis: Her Life and Music.”

MOVIES: Scorsese, Pacino and De Niro on “The Irishman”
Director Martin Scorsese and actors Al Pacino and Robert De Niro talked with correspondent Lee Cowan about their first-ever collaboration, “The Irishman,” the true story of Frank Sheeran, a hit man for a Philadelphia crime family. The mob epic, which spans decades, was created using cutting-edge technology to “de-age” its cast, as it traces the story loyalty and corruption, and of the fate of Teamsters Union president Jimmy Hoffa.
