Press

"One of the most interesting parts of the documentary is the window into the political machine before the spin-meisters took over – footage from the 1964 Republican convention, a raucous, unkempt affair, and of Goldwater being friendly with Jack Kennedy, his political rival and friend."

-- LA TIMES

"Doc contains a fine balance of personal talking-heads segments with rare archive footage..."
