Gov. Farris Bryant Addresses Senate Commerce Committee
- Governor Bryant addresses the Senate Commerce Committee in Washington concerning Senate Bill 1732 on rights and interstate busing.

Florida Senator Spessard Holland introduces Bryant to the committee, and Strom Thurmond, who sits on the committee, tells Bryant that he agrees with him. Produced by FDC.

President Kennedy at Democratic Fundraiser
- This film was shot in Miami. Senator Spessard Holland, Governor Farris Bryant, Senator George Smathers, Representative Dante Fascell, and President John F. Kennedy share the dais at this fundraiser for the National Democratic Party. Governor Bryant welcomes the president and describes the greatness of Democratic presidents who helped Florida. He also describes the qualities that make Florida great. Senator Holland speaks very briefly; then Senator Smathers thanks everyone. Next, President Kennedy speaks. He says that Smathers is his "most valuable counselor," then lists funny examples of wrong advice given to him by Smathers. He then talks about how Smathers raised the alarm about Latin American policy, says that space work is the way of the future for the United States and Florida, and salutes the state of Florida. Bryant presents a floral arrangement to Kennedy. Produced by the Florida Development Commission.
