This was originally shot on videotape, and first shown in this format, but when it was sold to local stations, it was transferred to film. See more »
When President Kennedy addresses the nation, the camera is a Philips PC-70 color camera which was not available until several years later. The actual address was televised with two RCA TK-30 black-and-white cameras (the second was a backup). See more »
This made for TV picture got rave reviews when it came out in 74. William Devane does a great job in his portrayal of JFK. Martin Sheen was also good as RFK. Howard Da Silva not to be overlooked as Nikita Khrushchev. When viewed today the filming technique may seem dated and dull but if that can be overlooked the content of the film is still powerful. Additionally it's all based on an actual historic event.
