Spacecraft America - Documentary available on DVD - *******www.mlfilms****/ - Pre-dating the Watergate Scandal, this prophetic satire uses commercials and TV coverage of Nixon's second inauguration to humorously demonstrate the absurdity of American culture and politics. Spacecraft America demonstrates that television new coverage and advertising are directing American culture and fogging the fine distinction between commercial exploitation of fantasies and political reality. Winner of the Silver Award Atlanta International Film Festival. Metacafe clip Authorized by MLF - mlfilms - Michael Lawrence Films
Wow..I was first surprised to see that a President who was elected in 1928 was still alive to be on TV! While going through some old kinescopes, I came upon this clip of former President Herbert Hoover giving a speech on the opening day of the Republican National Convention held at the International Ampitheater in Chicago, IL.
This was the year that Richard Nixon and Henry Cabot Lodge were nominated to run against John Kennedy & Lyndon Johnson. (As you know, Nixon lost but later won along with VP Spiro Agnew.)
Anyway, here is a clip of 85 year old Hoover's speech to the convention on July 25, 1960.
UPDATE: See my recent updates on both the Democratic & Republican National Conventions of 1960.
