This U.S. Information Agency film chronicled the 1968 presidential campaign. Topics included the first primaries in New Hampshire, the surprise withdrawal of President Lyndon Johnson from the race, Robert Kennedy’s assassination, the national political conventions, and Richard Nixon’s victory over Hubert Humphrey. During the Cold War, the U.S. Information Agency made films for international audiences to promote American society and democracy. By law, the films couldn’t be shown in the U.S. until 12 years after they were produced. Courtesy of the National Archives and Records Administration. close
