Profiles in Courage

Show Summary

This series was based on the 1956 Pulitzer Prize winning book of the same name by then-Senator John F. Kennedy. Each of the historical dramas covered one public figure who served as a model of virtue and courage under pressure. Each subject took an unpopular stand and persevered in their pursuit of justice and the right path, in spite of the coercion and vilification of the majority.

    It is truly odd that this excellent, Emmy winning historical series is rated as "mediocre". It was anything but mediocre, and deserves to be released on DVD. Even though it was based on a flawed and over-rated book that Theodore Sorenson ghost-wrote for JFK, the series was superb. Many of the episodes were gripping drama, and the show was historically infomative, well written, and well acted. Unfortunatly, I nevwer saw it when it was on American Tv, but had to wait for a Candian Broadcasting station( I live across the border from Canada in Detroit.) to rerun a number of the episodes. I teach Political Science in a community college, and have used two bootleg episodes of Slattery's People in class. I would love to do the same thing with some episodes of Profiles in Courage.moreless
