It's easy to see why this one had the full cooperation of the Kennedy administration. Cliff Robertson smiles his way through his portrayal of a young JFK without even hinting at any negative attributes of the man. Still with all that said, this is a decent enough movie. Very pleasant in its telling of what is essentially a factual tale. Plus it's a blast seeing all of those character actors who would later make their marks in television series (Robert Blake, Norman Fell, Robert Culp, George Gaynes and my favorite "Barney Miller's" James Gregory) But at 2 hours, 20 minutes, this movie does begin to feel longer than Kennedy's tenure.
