John F. Kennedy,
How anyone could say anything negative about this documentary is beyond me. It's one of the best edited documentaries I've ever seen. It's great and it's best feature is there is no narration. The events do all the narrating itself. It simply plays it out in order with a flew black cards giving us dates and times and nothing else. The editing is crisp and the highlight of the film. The music works well too, not glaring but not silent - kind of eerie. There was another similar type documentary a few years back that was just CBS news as it happened, not a compilation of various news clips from network and local shows like this. This is better.
One person wrote this should be curriculum in schools. I highly agree. I can think of no better way to teach people about the events of this period than simply showing them this - it's as suspenseful and entertaining and informative as any movie.
