Jingle Bells

  • This short film was the first film I made with Robert Kennedy after his brother’s death. Robert Kennedy had decided to run for the New York Senate and was making a round of publicity appearances with Ethel and some of his children at New York City public schools around Christmas time.  Fellow filmmaker Michael Blackwood asked if we could come along, and we did. Sammy Davis Jr. was there, too.

  • A film by D A Pennebaker 1964, 16 min., B&W.
