JFK: The Day the Nation Cried documents the life and death of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, the 35th President of the United States. Narrated with class and style by James Earl Jones, this documentary features rare, unseen video footage of the assassinated President, as well as previously unseen home movies of the President with his family at the Kennedy compound in Hyannis Port, Maine. This documentary uses archival footage from many sources, including from WFAA, the Dallas television station which was uniquely located next to the grassy knoll near where the President was shot. Interviews with family, including the late Ted Kennedy, and friends including former President Gerald Ford, Peter, Paul and Mary, Tip O'Neill and Coretta Scott King, the widow of slain civil rights leader Martin Luther King. As much a celebration of the life of JFK as a look at the circumstances surrounding his death, JFK: The Day the Nation Cried is a touching tribute to a man whose life and death touched not just his nation, but many across the world.moreless
