If you're looking for a documentary film of the assassination events in November 1963, the 1964 film "Four Days In November" is exceptional, as is the 2009 History Channel film "JFK - 3 Shots That Changed America".
"Years Of Lightning, Day of Drums" however is a documentary of the events in the 3 years of the Kennedy presidency, bookended by the assassination and funeral.
It is a superior documentary and a major selling point is the PRISTINE, EXCEPTIONAL, CRYSTAL-CLEAR video quality. I have NEVER seen this footage presented in such sharp, vivid color anywhere else, in any other documentary or news program, and there are many clips of President Kennedy not shown in any other documentaries. The producers obviously had the original source material and used it for this film.
So if like me you had seen this film on TV years ago and it didn't look very good, don't hesitate to buy this, you will be impressed.
Highly recommended for all those interested in the Kennedy years and their impact on Americans and people around the world.
