4.0 out of 5 stars A Fascinating Historical Record December 21, 2010
Verified Purchase
Time-Life editor Robert Drew offers a fresh and different approach to documentary film making, as you will see in his Kennedy Films Collection. Drew's "fly-on-the-wall" technique puts you right in the middle of the events being filmed as they unfold.
There is very little narration in his films; none is needed, thanks to Drew's brilliant direction and editing, and Richard Leacock's cutting-edge camera work. This two-disc set gives you an intimate and close-up look at Kennedy and other prominent figures who worked with and against him during this historical period.

Disc one follows Democratic Presidential hopefuls John Kennedy and Minnesota Senator Hubert Humphrey in the days leading up to the 1960 Wisconsin Primary. Robert Drew puts you up close and personal with the candidates as they travel from town to town across Wisconsin, shaking hands, mingling with voters and speaking at rallies. In the beginning, Senator Humphrey appears to be the clear-cut favorite, especially in the farming communities; he's the candidate from the neighboring state of Minnesota who has fought for the farmers in Washington. Kennedy, on the other hand, is seen by the agricultural community as a slick, big-city politician from the northeast who favors the wealthy. In the end,the big-city vote and the Kennedy charisma wins Wisconsin. The camera beautifully captures the adoration toward the Kennedys from the people of Wisconsin. The women are clearly charmed by the vigorous young candidate from Massachusetts; the men are enamored with his secret weapon, the lovely Jackie. The film concludes with a behind-the-scenes look at the Kennedy and Humphrey camps as they watch the returns trickle in. The camera effectively captures every nerve-wracking moment of that night.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must Have!! January 17, 2012
By JP_58
Verified Purchase
To JFK fans / admirers - and anyone who enjoys American political history - both documentaries are a must have. I read quite a bit about this time in our country's past - and it is always fascinating to see history in motion. RFK also plays a significant role in "Crisis". Enough said - get this collection - you will appreciate it!
