JFK, as remembered by a New Englander

Filmmaker Robert Kline’s long list of credits includes documentaries on Presidents Clinton and Reagan. He is also the former vice president of production at 20th Century Fox and cofounder of Lifetime Television. But it was his 2008 film adaptation of Thomas Maier’s book, “The Kennedys: America’s Emerald Kings,” that provided the calling card that led to his latest documentary, “JFK Remembered: 50 Years Later.”

Boston native Thomas Lucas of Warner Home Video tapped Kline to make a new film that would be included in a deluxe DVD box set called “JFK (Ultimate Collector’s Edition)” that debuts Nov. 12. “JFK Remembered: 50 Years Later,” directed by Kline and co-produced by his wife, Stephanie Heredia, is one of five films in the package (see DVD releases, Page N9).
