JFK: The Day the Nation Cried DVD

Poignantly narrated by James Earl Jones, this moving documentary film, JFK: The Day the Nation Cried, looks back on the remarkable life and death of John Fitzgerald Kennedy (1917-1963), the 35th President of the United States of America. The story is told through previously unseen and rare video footage, as well as home movies (Camelot, and the family compound of Hyannis Port), and exclusive historic videotape from WFAA, the Dallas station whose studios are located so near the infamous grassy knoll where the JFK was shot. Woven throughout the historic footage are recollections from Gerald Ford, Coretta Scott King, Tip O’Neil, Peter, Paul and Mary, Isaac Stern, Arthur Schlesinger Jr., Ted Kennedy, and many others, all remembering the man who so deeply touched their lives. JFK’s triumphs, failures, inspirations, and contributions to our history are all aptly covered and discussed in this expansive, award-winning DVD documentary.
Combining the tragedy of John F. Kennedy’s untimely death at the hands of Lee Harvey Oswald, with the remembrances of those who knew him best, and those who did not know him not at all but were affected and inspired by his life, this film allows us to see the events of his final days as they happened, from JFK’s arrival in Dallas to his funeral in Washington four days later.
Also included are excerpts from the Abraham Zapruder television interview & film, and JFK’s many speeches (campaign and inauguration, Cuban missile crisis, equality & civil rights, & the Soviet speech at American University, among others), along with discussions concerning Lee Harvey Oswald, The Texas School Book Depository, and Jack Ruby. Other topics include establishing the Peace Corps and the Alliance for Progress, the Bay of Pigs, Cuban leader Fidel Castro, Communism, his marriage to Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, and Kennedy’s Pulitzer Prize winning book Profiles in Courage.
