In 1960, a filmmaking group was granted direct access to John F. Kennedy, filming him on the campaign trail and eventually in the Oval Office. This resulted in three films of remarkable, behind-closed-doors intimacy, Primary, Adventures on the New Frontier, and Crisis, and, following the president's assassination, the poetic short Faces of November. Collected here are all four of these titles, early exemplars of the movement known as Direct Cinema.

Wow, these were very interesting to me. Glorious black and white film for one thing, in an era when I was a small child. Its amazing that none of the major networks had any interest in these documentaries, how could they not see how great the are? Times have changed, at least in some ways. I recommend for anyone interested in US history.

Do view this to observe how the last Real Democrat in the White House acted and articulated, then do please read the following three books:
Two Days in June, by Andrew Cohen
Battling Wall Street: the Kennedy presidency, by Donald Gibson, and
The Devil's Chessboard, by David Talbot
