Product Description

A touching look back at one of the most beloved and controversial presidents of modern times and the man who defined a decade of American history. Explore the life of Ronald Reagan through newsreels, presidential appearances and Hollywood footage. 2 DVDs. 2004/color/7 hrs/NR/fullscreen.

Amazon.com

Ronald Reagan: The Great Communicator edits together over 100 clips of Ronald Reagan speaking--including television appearances, press conferences, addresses of Congress and the U.N., speeches at political conventions, and even a few snippets from his movie career--into four 90- to 120-minute themed retrospectives: One is an overview of his presidential career; one portrays his stance against the Soviet Union; one pulls together his inspirational view of America; and one is devoted to his humor. There's no narration or interviews with other politicians or aides; this is 100%, pure unadulterated Reagan, boiled down to pithy, punchy sound bites (as well as an archive of 28 lengthier excerpts). Pop-up boxes provide a smidgeon of historical context and there is nothing unflattering (no hint of the Iran/Contra scandal, for example). However, the sampling demonstrates his gift for using stories and jokes to illustrate his political points, as well as his undeniable skill as a speaker. Devotees of the 40th president will treasure this document. --Bret Fetzer

If you want everything Reagan, wall-to-wall Reagan, non-stop Reagan and nothing but Reagan this is the video for you. Unlike the Morris book, this tape features six hours of Reagan being Reagan--in his own words and nobody else's. His fight against Communism, his gentle wit, his optimism and patriotism shine in this video series. I can't think of anything that's not in this series; every great moment of crisis and leadership in the Reagan presidency is covered including vintage clips covering his pre-Presidential years. If you want the whole enchilada then order this video box set. You won't be disappointed.

This compilation of President Reagan's speeches is probably the most complete collection I have encountered. It has all the speeches I remember from when I was a boy back in the 1980's. It brings back great memories of America's last great president. Most of the speeches presented are shown in most of their entirety. Some of them include SDI, Challenger Disaster, Bombing Libya, Invading Grenada, and Farewell Address to the Nation, to name a few. If you are an admirer of Reagan and suffer from Nostalgia of the Reagan era as I do, this video is for you. Overall, I do recommend this video. It brought back great memories of my childhood with the man I will always call "My President."

This video series is the best one yet. Unfortunately, many of the DVDs that cover President Reagan's legacy are overshadowed by the harsh words of left wing critics with axes to grind.
This DVD set shows Mr. Reagan's speeches and comments in an unbiased and uncut way. I really enjoyed watching this series, and it is no wonder why Americans felt better about themselves during both of his Presidential terms. President Reagan was one of the greatest leaders in world history, and this DVD set shows you why. I highly recommend this DVD set over all the other Reagan biographical series. Enjoy!

Let the Noam Chomsky fans continue to live in thier idyllic (yet bitter) ersatz-Upotia that exists only in thier private, unattainable fantasyland. This is a wonderful set for all Reagan fans who admired and respected the man and the way he was able to turn the country around from the doldrums and despair of the toothless Carter administration and reminded us all what made this country great.

It's also nice to have more complete clips of Reagan's most famous moments and not just the "best-of" highlight clips that we've seen a million times.

Buy it...watch it...live it again. Who knows when we'll see a man of this vision and greatness again.

I strongly recommend this wonderful box set to everyone - Reagan fans and even them who are liberals and anti-Reagans. I also thank those people who worked so much to make us richer by this item. All the vital speeches are here and this is a must see title for this generation and the generations to come.

After a week of watching tributes pour in and listening to what other people have to say about President Reagan I wanted to go back and hear from the source himself. This DVD was where I turned. With over seven (count 'em!) hours of well-chosen speeches this is the ultimate tribute to the man called the Great Communicator. I am incredibly happy with this purchase and you will be too. This DVD will stand the test of time.

A must-see for all Ronald fan.
He brought US a rebirth by speeding up the military race which directly or indirectly speed up the final crash of the "Evil Empire" and changed our a whole generation's life. Thank you, great president.

as to the DVD itslef: 2 points:
1. though it is a DVD, the resolution is still low due to the taken age and half of them, the screen just shaking (cam man did not have a tripod there?????), but as a whole it is OK
2. there are roughly 50 scene with total 6 hrs play time, one of the not-perfect thing, when you want a little context following the high point, it is over :-)

But since I am afraid it is the most comprehensive one you could get, ***** is given.

I had the privilege of watching a preview of this DVD and highly recommend it for its artistry and historical completeness. Regardless of your political views, by purchasing this remarkable DVD you will not only be enriching your own knowledge of the late President and his times but providing an excellent educational resource for your children, especially if they are too young to remember the Reagan era.
