The National Archives and Records Administration [NARA] teamed up with "CustomFlix Labs" (which is now called "CreateSpace") in the Summer of 2007, and began releasing many archived films and newsreels on the DVD-R digital video format. "CreateSpace" is an Amazon.com company which specializes in producing "On Demand" DVDs and Audio CDs.

A July 30, 2007, press release states -- "The National Archives has selected the CustomFlix DVD-on-Demand service {now "CreateSpace"} to initially make its collection of Universal Newsreels, dating from 1929 to 1967, available on DVD to the general public for purchase on Amazon.com. .... The DVD-on-Demand program allows organizations like the National Archives to offer their DVDs for sale on Amazon.com without inventory. DVDs are manufactured only when customers purchase them, eliminating the risks and hassles associated with traditional distribution, while ensuring titles remain in stock. Once purchased on Amazon.com, DVDs can be delivered to the customer within 24 hours."

I, for one, am very excited about this new agreement between CreateSpace and the National Archives, particularly as it relates to the various films and programs centering on the subject of former President John F. Kennedy and his 1963 assassination in Dallas, Texas.

The rare film from the National Archives that has been placed on this DVD is a film that I never thought would be made available in uncut form on any video format -- the "Assassination Reconstruction Film" that was produced by the U.S. Secret Service in early December 1963 (approximately two weeks after President Kennedy was murdered).

I have mixed feelings about this DVD. The film, shot by the Secret Service in the days following Pres. Kennedy's assassination, is scratchy and it shows almost identical re-enactments many times. And it's too short. Th best footage is that of the e-enactment of the president's car through the cross hairs of a rifle scope. However, this is a unique glimpse back at the scene of the crime, and conjurs up what happened. It really takes the audience back in time to that terrible time when the nation was caught up in grief and shock. As a historical piece of film it's certainly worth seeing, but not quite worth the money buying.
