    They were arguably the most powerful family in America. But the
    dynasty dissolved in a frenzy of excess, backbiting and sexual
    indiscretions. The Vanderbilts were a gossip columnists dream. Their
    saga was a magnificent tapestry of honor, greed and scandal, and, of
    course, wealth. This documentary traces their stunning story, from
    the genius of the Commodore to the custody battle over little
    Gloria. Discover how Cornelius first built a fortune in shipping
    before turning his attention to railroads. Relive his legendary
    battles with rival John Jay Gould. Trace the scandals that scarred
    the family image, and learn of their enormous contributions to
    charity that could never overcome the doings that dominated the
    gossip page. And biographers and rare footage highlight the defining
    moments in the history of the dynasty.
