Political oratory in the mid-twentieth century includes Joseph Welch at the Army-McCarthy senate hearings (1954), the Khrushchev-Nixon "Kitchen Debate" (1957), and Hubert Humphrey at a political rally (1960). Archival film footage and insightful commentary create a historical perspective of the 1950s.
