very good record of the Kennedy years
24 November 2003 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

I saw this on the 40th anniversary of the Kennedy assasination and found it very interesting and timely.

As I understand, this movie first came out in 1983, before the publication of the book 'The Dark Side of Camelot' by Hersh. I wonder if it would be different had it come out after this book.
