Frost’s subsequent speeches at Sarah Lawrence College and Amherst College run throughout the entire film, with Clarke cutting back and forth to excerpts of Frost’s laughs and lessons with college students.
Kennedy: “The artist, however faithful to his personal vision of reality, becomes the lost champion of the individual mind and sensibility, against an intrusive society and officious state.” This begins President Kennedy’s encomium to Frost, honoring his life and career at a Congressional Gold Medal ceremony on March 26, 1962.
