The Lost Kennedy Home Movies
Through remarkable home movies, gathered from archives and attics and now seen for the first time, The Lost Kennedy Home Movies tells the story of the children of Joseph and Rose Kennedy as they grew up in the 1930s and '40s and later burst into the national spotlight during the political careers of John, Robert and Ted Kennedy. The special concludes in November 1963, with scenes of the last weekend John and Jackie Kennedy spent with Caroline and John, Jr., just two weeks before JFK's assassination in Dallas. The extremely rare home movies, transferred to HD, create a revealing and emotional portrait of the "first generation" Kennedy family, with warmth and humor, in moments of sports and leisure, and in scenes of reflection and exploration. Also featured is behind-the-scenes footage of the family at their Hyannis Port and Palm Beach homes, and on trips to Europe and Asia, as well as never-before-seen home movies filmed by Robert and Ethel Kennedy in the early 1950s.
