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.

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!

I not only loved watching these DVDs, I appreciated these DVDs. I think a lot of people are only familiar with the assasination of President Kennedy. These DVDs allow one to see him as a man, a President and humanitarian.

I also thought to it was wonderful to get a glimpse of America in the late 50s/early 60s; to paraphrase Bob Dylan - "times, they have 'a changed." Wow - have they changed!

Only thing which I did not like was that there are no subtitles. Luckily, I was brought up in Mass so could "translate" most of it - but I certainly did not catch everything!

I have allot of Kennedy programs and books as I'm so interested in that whole camalot erra and this is a great collection of things that I did not know and more importantly from viewpoints that were new to me-Robert Drew did a great job with this and so I look for his name on things as I know they will be well done and informative.
