John F. KennedyPosted: June 13, 2014
This 1964 documentary, narrated by Cliff Robertson, paints an intimate portrait of President Kennedy during his all-too-brief 46-year life.
What makes this program a little more special than other similar documentaries (IMO) is the fact that it was made very shortly after JFK’s death, which occurred in November 1963. The very good music score by David Rose is also an asset.
Author Jim Bishop, who wrote two books about JFK, makes an appearance near the end of this film to talk about some of his personal experiences with President Kennedy. Bishop’s commentary provides a touching climax to this very good documentary.
The original title of this film is simply “JOHN FITZGERALD KENNEDY”.
