It offers a new perspective on his private life, his relationship with his wife, his close connection to his brother, Robert, and his bond with his father. JFK also reevaluates his strengths and weaknesses in the Oval Office as he navigated some of the most explosive events of the mid-twentieth century.

An Educational Experience

By Cordeenia

Comments about PBS American Experience: JFK DVD:

Education starts here. For instance, it starts when JFK was young and (I did not know) of his medical problems from a young boy to man. His relationship with his father and family, how he got into politics and of course, the Cuban Missile Crisis - this is a video to watch more than once. If you love history and want to learn, this is the video for you.

This program reveals the true JFK, not what the media says.

By rxflyfisher

Comments about PBS American Experience: JFK DVD:

Although this does not tell you the underhanded way Joseph Kennedy gained his wealth, it does show how the Kennedy family lied and used their wealth to gain positions of power. JFK was a smart wimp who had an incredible brother who was probably responsible for much of the success of JFK's presidency. There may have been a sliver of good that came from the Kennedy family but it is not well revealed in this program.

American Experience: JFK DVD by PBS

By miriomnibus

Comments about PBS American Experience: JFK DVD:

For anyone who wants to see shots of the Kennedy presidency this is it. You can't beat the TWO disc set from the PBS. You get all the history from when he first started dating Jacqueline Bovier to running for the Senate to his Presidency with the Bay of Pigs and of course, the assignation and the end is the outstanding funeral that his young wife put together in less than a week, while she was moving out of het home, the White House, due to an edict from Johnson to MOVE OUT so WE CAN MOVE IN! With a message that..."if you need anything let us know, we care deeply for you". Talk about speaking out of both sides of your mouth, this is it! I honesty think he was responsible for joining the men who killed OUR President but there is no proof yet, at least we now have more information released to us from the file that were kept in a vault for the fifty years since the President's assassination. So in my humble opinion this two disc set of JFK and his wife, JBK, this is a must if you truly want to know the Kennedy history.

A Fair Assessment

By Diane

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: JFK DVD:

The best documentary I have seen on JFK presenting both his strengths and weaknesses. A welcome edition to mid-20th century history, especially for those too young to have experienced the JFK era.
