Biography is one of the most satisfying of documentary types, and this week finds a trio of excellent offerings. “Ethel” is an intimate, personal look at a celebrated American, Ethel Kennedy, directed by Rory Kennedy, her accomplished documentarian daughter. Aviva Kempner's two-disc “The Life and Times of Hank Greenberg” tells you everything you need to know about the great Detroit Tigers slugger, baseball's first Jewish superstar. Equally comprehensive, albeit by nature funnier, is Robert Trachtenberg's “Mel Brooks: Make a Noise,” in which the comedy mastermind does what he does best: make us laugh.

It may not be the most trenchant documentary, but "Ethel," Rory Kennedy's otherwise superb tribute to her mother and, in large part, her father, Robert F. Kennedy, is a moving, highly enjoyable, thoroughly absorbing portrait. Booked for a quick theatrical run before its upcoming HBO premiere, the film chronicles the life of Ethel Skakel Kennedy from her seemingly charmed childhood as the puckish daughter of a successful Chicago businessman to her 1950 marriage to RFK and her role, following her husband's 1968 assassination, as a devoted, competitive, at times free-spirited matriarch and torchbearer for RFK's famed social consciousness.

"Have you ever told a coal miner in West Virginia or Kentucky that what he needs is individual initiative to go out and get a job where there isn't any?" --Robert F. Kennedy, August 1964 * "There ain't never been no jobs here," says David Bowling, one of 13 grown children of Iree and Bascum Bowling of Mudlick Hollow in eastern Kentucky. "This place is a plain hole in the wall. Right there . . .

Rory Kennedy was originally moved to make her Appalachia documentary, "American Hollow," by concern about the 1996 welfare reform law cutting aid to recipients who fail to get jobs. According to her mother, Ethel Kennedy, Rory was so concerned about the new law's potential impact on poor families and those in places such as Appalachia, where jobs are scarce, that she wrote a letter to President Clinton taking him to task for signing the bill. Clinton's response?

Helen Thomas, longtime member of the White House press corps, certainly qualifies for national icon status. For many Americans, she has been a permanent fixture of presidential press conferences, the lady in the front row who not only opened and closed the event but who also often asked the pushiest questions. Not surprisingly, where some see a grand dame, others see a crank -- but no one can deny her significance. "Sixty Years. Nine Presidents. One Fearless Reporter" runs the advance for "Thank You, Mr. President: Helen Thomas at the White House," which premieres on HBO tonight.

They came for a wedding, but soon, on Saturday, the atmosphere at the Kennedy compound here was much more like a wake. "How much more can a family take?" wondered Joan Greim, who for years has worked at the John F. Kennedy Hyannis Museum. As family and friends converged on Cape Cod for what was to be by Kennedy standards a small wedding--about 275 people--they were greeted with the somber news that the private plane carrying 38-year-old John F.
