One of the White House's cultural zeniths, seen by millions
29 May 2004 | by (Las Vegas, NV) – See all my reviews

Three out of four American television viewers tuned to CBS or NBC to watch a A Tour of the White House with Mrs. John F. Kennedy in 1962, which was syndicated world-wide (estimates of hundreds of millions of people eventually saw the program, making it the most widely viewed documentary during that era).

Mrs. Kennedy provided a masterful, authoritative, knowledgeable tour of the various historical artifiacts furnishing 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, "the people's house", its interior design and her well-received renovation efforts of the White House, all the while amidst an aura of elegance by the First Lady hard not not to be captured by while viewing the tour.

This was shown as part of historical films in my junior high school history course and left a poignant memory of an era. It should be put back into print as an educational and cultural DVD for those of a new generation to enjoy.
