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.

History with a human heart

By Dottie

from Houston, TX

Comments about PBS American Experience: JFK DVD:

I wasn't born in this era, but this program helped me to understand what it was like. It did a great job of telling the whole story of JFK not just the myth. Well made and presented. I would highly recommend.

Fresh look at JFK

By Susie Jo

from Dallas TX

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: JFK DVD:

I thought I had read or heard everything about Kennedy, but this program had many pieces of footage and early photographs I had never seen. It dealt with his early years, World War II and his early political career in a way fresh and new. Growing up in Dallas, Texas, I lived through 11/22/63. I thought this program handled that tragedy with great dignity and sorrow -- simply and short.

How I Met John Fitzgerald Kennedy

By Brad-first Peace Corps member

from Sugar Hill, New Hampshire

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: JFK DVD:

Growing up and attending school through my teen years in Boston, I was quite aware of the Kennedy Family and the legacy of the Kennedy Clan.
After graduating from Boston English High School I entered the USAF and spent three years of my service in West Germany and then returned to continue my education at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.
When the call "Ask Not..." was made, I joined the first Peace Corps Volunteer and travelled to the White House where JFK wished the best for our Colombia One group of young men. I met JFK again in Bogota,Colombia and then learned of his death while teaching new PC Trainees in New Mexico.
The dvd I watched on PBS made it imperative that I get a copy for my library to learn more details of the man. The dvd filled in a lot of gaps in my inderstanding of the man and his place in my life.
