Abstract:

Widely considered a breakthrough in documentary filmmaking, the three films in this 2-disc set offer the most intimate and candid look at Kennedy ever put on film. These three seminal films provide a captivating history of JFK -- from his young years as a senator to his days in the White House, to fallen hero.

Primary. This documentary grants audiences unprecdented access into the world of a young politician and his glamourous wife as they campaign across the Wisconsin landscape and navigate their way through throngs of ardent supporters. The film captures John F. Kennedy's rock-star presence and Jackie's quiet radiance as they confront rival front-runner Hubert Humphrey in the state's pivotal primary election.

Crisis: behind a presidential commitment. This fly-on-the-wall chronicle of John F. Kennedy in the White House follows Gov. George Wallace's attempts to stonewall integration at the University of Alabama and thwart JFK's Justice Department, which was headed by Robert Kennedy. The result is a deeply intimate study of JFK and RFK, capturing the powerful brothers as they forge a great victory for civil rights and racial equality.

Faces of November. Drew's final film on John F. Kennedy offers a somber view of reactions to President Kennedy's funeral as reflected in the faces of participants and onlookers.
