"It's in this compilation film that Kennedy comes most vividly alive"

Kristine McKenna, Los Angeles Times

In 1985, Robert Drew pulled together his four original films on President John F. Kennedy and combined them with period footage to create a well-rounded biography of the nation’s 35th president.
