"Robert F. Kennedy press conference and luncheon in Los Angeles"

June 8, 1964


Black and white footage of Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy giving a press conference at the Sheraton West hotel in Los Angeles. Topics covered include whether or not he plans to seek the office of vice president, the likelihood of Senator Goldwater as the Republican candidate, the upcoming presidential campaign and his future plans. He also attends a luncheon, where he gives a speech thanking people for their contributions, likely referring to the effort to raise funds to build the John F. Kennedy Library. Some footage is silent, including exterior shots of the Sheraton West, shots of men and women at tables during the luncheon, and reporters, cameramen and equipment during the press conference.

Note:  The KTLA newsfilm collection at UCLA consists of cut and unedited stories, outtakes and fill footage, originally shot on 16mm reversal film stock with magnetic soundtrack. Some footage, particularly material not used for broadcast, may be without sound.
