Goofs

In the scene between Jackie and her assistant Bess in the car following their pre inauguration visit, there are several indications that this movie was filmed in the early 80s. First, if you look over Blair Brown's right shoulder as the car moves down the street, you'll notice a current version of a "Do Not Enter" street sign. It's the kind with the big red circle with a white line going through it. Those type of street signs didn't appear across America until the 1970s. As the car continues to move down the street, immediately behind it are a few other automobiles from that time period. However, again over Blair Brown's shoulder, you'll notice the car passes several 80s era vehicles which are parked. See more »

The Kennedy Administration: Warts and All
13 September 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This may well be the definitive "Kennedy" film in terms of historical accuracy and honesty, positing forth the best and less-than-best of this so-called Camelot administration. Martin Sheen is, as usual, outstanding in the title role, and his Kennedy not only bares his fallacies but impresses an honest sense of public service. As the former first lady, Blair Brown is nothing less than superb, and her Jacqueline Kennedy is eerily touching, especially with her voiced-over prophecy of her "appointment with death." Together, Sheen and Blair actually generate the sense of youth and glamour that distinquished the real administration. They are more than aptly backed up by a stellar supporting cast headed by John Shea (RKF), E.G. Marshall (Joe Sr.) and the late Vincent Gardenia (as a sinister, throughly unlikeable J. Edgar Hoover). There are apparently two versions on the market: the edited and the unedited. Go for the latter; the former is so badly chopped up that the historical value is lost. My only question: where the heck can I get the original five-hour cassette (and I've looked!)? My other one's worn out! From the scholarship standpoint, this film is an important historical resource.
