In America Is Hard to See de Antonio examines the most crucial political campaign of mid-century America: Senator Eugene McCarthys unsuccessful bid for the 1968 Democratic presidential nomination. De Antonio, working with material culled from thousands of feet of newsreel and combined with his own interviews, has put together a film which not only grasps the essential of McCarthys unsuccessful bid. By the end of the film, McCarthy is seen to have been the catalyst for the political drama of 1968. (Deac Rossell, 1970)
