An insightful portrayal of Lyndon Baines Johnson, "LBJ: A Remembrance" reveals the extraordinary political accomplishments of the complex and often contradictory man who was the thirty-sixth President of the United States. Twenty-five years after the inauguration of Lyndon Baines Johnson, this film recalls The Great Society through voices of Cabinet members and close friends. Weaving together images by the gifted White House photographer Youichi Okamoto, this film illuminates the often hidden quality behind the President--his relentless drive, brilliance and compassion--revealing a man who carried with him to the White House his life stories of growing up poor in rural Texas and his commitment to the common man. "...morally and politically moving...for an American president to concern himself profoundly with the problems of ordinary people..."---Harry McPherson, LBJ Aide Written by
