Crisis behind a presidential commitment ( Visual )
5 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 454 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Having earned John F. Kennedy's trust with his 1960 campaign-trail film Primary, cinéma vérité documentarian Robert Drew expressed his desire to document a president in crisis. When African American college students Vivian Malone and James Hood prepared to enroll at the all-white University of Alabama in June 1963, governor George Wallace defied a federal court order and vowed to prevent the students' enrollment. Kennedy granted unprecedented access to Drew and his unobtrusive four-team crew, who used handheld cameras to cover both sides of the conflict: Wallace self-righteously clings to segregation, while a flurry of phone calls between the president, attorney general Robert F. Kennedy, and deputy attorney general Nicholas Katzenback reveal a tightly coordinated plan to dismiss Wallace (in Robert Kennedy's words) as "a second-rate figure." Special feature: Drew's short film Faces of November provides an examination of the meaning of John F. Kennedy's death to those at his funeral

A happy mother's day ( Visual )
13 editions published between 1963 and 2005 in English and German and held by 33 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The filmmakers follow the Fischer family during the days just after the birth of the quintuplets to the parade celebrating their one month birthday. Leacock was hired by the Saturday Evening Post to make a film about the Fischer quintuplets. When he showed the completed film to his sponsors, they did not approve of it.

These unfortunate difficulties do allow a unique opportunity to contrast Leacock's approach with a network documentary
