Sir John Templeton

The year 2013, marked the 100th anniversary of the birth of Sir John Templeton. To commemorate that milestone, a new documentary film about the life and legacy of Sir John, Contrarian, was released in January 2014.

Directed by Mary Mazzio, the award-winning documentary film director and former Olympian, Contrarian chronicles the life and legacy of John Templeton, from his early days in Winchester, Tennessee, to his career as a legendary investor, as well as his later years focused on philanthropy. The film is shaped by a framework that illustrates his pragmatism and ability to convey complex concepts in simple, understandable terms, fitting with what has been called his “Tennessee speak.” The film is divided into three parts: the Early Years, the Middle Years, and the Later Years.
