Howdy again, top19!

I've gathered info on several options for you. I am assuming that
you're wanting these DVDs for playback in the United States or Canada.
If this assumption is wrong, please let me know, and I'll re-target my
search for a different format.

"The Speeches Collection - John F. Kennedy
John F. Kennedy was the most dynamic President in decades. His
charismatic message of hope and change led the nation into a 'New
Frontier'. The first President to utilize the medium of television;
every speech contained in this tape reverberates with his special
lifeforce. You'll see all the major addresses, from his 1960
Presidential campaign through his three controversial years in office.
Possess forever the history and the moments of JFK." The Speeches Collection - John F. Kennedy 

A larger collection that includes JFK's speeches, plus speeches by
Presidents Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan, and by Dr. Martin Luther
King, Jr.:

"In this 2-disc collection, American leaders John F. Kennedy, Martin
Luther King, Jr., Gerald Ford and Ronald Reagan are seen delivering
some of their most famous and important speeches. The Speeches Of John
F. Kennedy: '...we stand today at the threshold of a new frontier...'
JFK was dynamic, poised and relaxed at all times. The program focuses
on Kennedy the public orator and features every major address during
his three years in the White House...

This compilation of stately addresses from the SPEECHES COLLECTION
includes podium deliveries by U.S. Presidents Gerald Ford, Ronald
Reagan, and John F. Kennedy as well as words from Dr. Martin Luther
King. This historical footage of some of the most historically
important speeches also includes historical photographs." The Speeches Collection

This DVD appears to be a privately compiled collection of speeches:

"John F. Kennedy Speeches, Inauguration and more Film Library DVD

shortly before and during his presidency." John F Kennedy JFK Speeches, Inauguration, Nixon DVD

If you are interested in reading the text of President Kennedy's
speeches, The American Presidency Project is a useful reference
source. Just scroll down the page to "Search the Entire Document
Archive" and enter "Kennedy" as the search term. Under "Limit by
Year," enter a starting date of 1961 and ending date of 1963:

You seem to have encountered the same problem I had. All of the videos
you listed are really only partial videos that only contain his most
famous as well as politically important speeches. A perfect example is
his American University "peace" speech, which is excellent in nature
and eloquently delivered, yet is not featured on any of those DVD's.
I'm looking for something that contains almost if not all of his
formal speeches that were delivered during his presidency.

I'm sorry. I didn't realize that you required all the speeches. I am
not aware of any DVD set that contains all of them. None of the
JFK-oriented lists that I found made mention of such a collection.

The American University speech is on this DVD collection, along with
many other speeches by famous persons other than JFK:
