Movie Reviews

History being told first hand

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Face it, there is something about LBJ that no other President had. These tapes are integral to the person who is after the real meaning and intent behind what LBJ was saying. The written word does not get across the emotions of what is being said or felt. This clears up many subjects from the man and the position, he was a great manipulator."
Highly recommended

"This is popular history done right, a useful tool for the uninitiated. With a little more budget for production values (to rid us of those cheesy re-enact about footage from the LBJL folks...there's lots of it) this could have been a national treasure. For the real deal I also recommend The American Experience 2 dvd set LBJ...but this is a great starting point. I view it about once every 6 months and it's always refreshing and revealing."

"It's almost unbelievebale that we can eaves drop on the president of the United States! This set of DVD's opens up a whole new light on the Johnson presidency. I knew he was rough around the edges but never dreamed he was so full of hate and paranoia! Every moment of these tapes is as intriguing as any mystery novel or movie ever made."
