Synopsis

The Speeches of Gerald Ford
This historical documentary presents the famous speeches of Gerald Ford, America's 38th president. Those included in the 55-minute program are: Ford's acceptance speech at the Republican convention, his pardon of President Richard Nixon, a bicentennial speech in honor of Queen Elizabeth, and his farewell speech to the nation. ~ Kathleen Wildasin, Rovi

The Speeches of John F. Kennedy
President John F. Kennedy was perhaps one of America's most gifted leaders and speakers. His charm and intellect allowed him to draw audiences in with both clear reason and quiet humor. This video includes many of his most important speeches from his 1960 campaign for president, though most are just captured in fairly short clips. Once these speeches are reviewed, it becomes clear that Kennedy was one of the most talented public speakers of the 20th century. His mastery is perhaps best captured in his "New Frontier," "Ich bin ein Berliner," and his speech about America's determination to successfully fly to the moon. Though his life was cut painfully short by assassination, this video helps JFK's political greatness live on indefinitely. ~ Elizabeth Smith, Rovi

The Speeches of Ronald Reagan
This video presents the major speeches of Ronald Reagan's political career. From his 1964 speech in favor of Barry Goldwater to his famous "Evil Empire" speech in the early 1980s, no major oration is absent. Reagan was one of the most effective political orators of modern times, and as such, was instrumental in shaping what people think of as modern conservatism. This volume is certainly of value for those seeking an understanding of American politics and of a man who in some ways defined it. ~ Rob Ferrier, Rovi

The Speeches of Martin Luther King, Jr.
The Speeches of Martin Luther King Jr. features the earth-shattering words of the great civil rights leader in a collection of his famous speeches. The tape contains all of Martin Luther King Jr.'s major addresses, including his indelible "I Have a Dream" recitation, as well as some illuminating and little-known statements. ~ Betsy Boyd, Rovi
