Trivia

The film, about the administration of assassinated US President John F. Kennedy, received a much wider and more generalized distribution than Four Days in November (1964), a film also about Kennedy, even playing in theaters that regularly screened big-screen blockbusters. See more »

Quotes

Offscreen Narrator: It was over. The crime was done. History will take up its cold pen and book, and write in chronological order the events of the day with the date, the time, and the city. But history will be wrong. For there wasn't one date, one time, or one city.

When I saw this film, I was sitting on the lawn at the Ambassador's Residence, in the Dominican Republic in early 1965. As such, Embassies were given a pre-screening, if you will. Diplomatic families, US citizens & other invitees were privy to this presentation. As a teenager, I missed JFK and was swept up in the production. I do remember thinking it was lovingly offered...and wondered how others might react that were not citizens. I had lived in Santo Domingo for some months at that time, only to be evacuated in late Spring of 1965 due to the revolution. As an adult now, I look forward to viewing this government film again...from hindsight:)
