Primary Reviews:

I would jump at the possibility to see this one of type look at AmericanPolitics at the crossroads. Before the media age had turned politicalcampaigns into impersonal commercials, even the stars (in this case,Kennedy and Humphrey) had to go out and press the flesh, hard. While Kennedy is slicker and seems to have the more organizedmachine behind him, he is still a saint of apprachability compared totoday's most folksie candidate. That's just how it was done before T.V.had compleatly eaten us alive. Some of the items with the affable, tireless Humphrey isparticuairly memorable. Speaking to a bunch of stone faced WisconsonFarmers, his giddy style takes on a true comic poniency, he's like acomic trying to loosen up Ed Gein. Yet, you receive from both candidates, yes, corny as it may sound,they now give a curse about the folks they are talking to. If youthink that has all but vanished, as I do, you may search this movie asstriking as I do. Some of the camera team went on to "Don't Look Back"and "Gimmie Shelter". 8 out of 10.


Terrible Hubert Humphrey. First he lost to John F. Kennedy. Then he lost to Richard Nixon. And finally, Jimmy Carter named him "Hubert Horatio Hornblower" at the 1980 Democratic National Convention. And that was AFTER he was dead — surely the final indignity. This movie examines Humphrey's first presidential run, focusing specifically on the April 1960 Democratic basic in Wisconsin, which threatened to derail JFK's candidacy on the familiar shoals of inexperience, religious prejudice, and lack of interest in agricultural issues. The 1960 campaign marked the birth of the modern era of politics as mass media personality cult, and unfortunately for Humphrey, he couldn't keep a candle to the youthful, handsome, and wealthy Jack Kennedy. As a film, Basic looks ugly and amateurish-but as a document of how the modern political campaign evolved, it's absolutely priceless. Anyone remotely interested in American politics needs to see this film.


Basic (1960) *** 1/2 (out of 4)Historically necessary documentary covers the 1960 Wisconsin basic featuring Hubert Humphrey going up vs John F. Kennedy. Considering what would happen over the next three years, watching this movie today is cute remarkable because you can easy see why Kennedy would eventually become president. Just watching the two candidates work just shows an old school and fresh school and it's not difficult to see why Kennedy would eventually receive in the office. It's cute interesting watching this today because of the fact that Kennedy would be assassinated three years after all of this was shot. It's difficult not to see Kennedy and that smile of his and not feel sad because no one should have known what was to follow. Director Robert Drew does a very nice job at really being fair to both boys as I think the documentary shows both of them in a very nice and positive light. I really liked the method the movie was shot as the camera is more often than not right up on the men, the folks meeting them and this look really makes you feel as if you're right there by these people. There's no question that the visual style of this movie would have a major impact on future movies including Bob Dylan's DON'T LOOK BACK. Running just under a hour, the movie manages to be highly entertaining from begin to finish but even more so because we know what the final effect was.
