Trivia

The novel seen on the edge of the bathtub when Jack is taking a bath, is a hard-back edition of the James Bond book "From Russia With Love" (1957) written by Ian Fleming. President John F. Kennedy listed Fleming's book as among his top ten favorite novels of all time. That list was published in LIFE Magazine on 17th March 1961. Possibly as a result, the producers of the Bond films, Harry Saltzman and Albert R. Broccoli, decided to make From Russia with Love (1963) the second James Bond movie. According to the book "Death of a President" (1964) by William Raymond Manchester, From Russia with Love (1963) was the last motion picture JFK ever saw, which was in a private screening in the White House on 20th November 1963.

Low budget but still interesting
16 May 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie has a "crazy credit" that says something to the effect that: Some scenes contain dialogue that has been invented for dramatic purposes, but not the scenes you think.

In other words, this low budget movie* used research not only based on public statements but also some of the private conversations that became available via the Freedom of Information Act.

So you hear these iconic figures making statements that are somewhat cynical. They recognized the limitations of real world politics and, in some cases, their own foibles.

*Actors do not look very much like the famous persons they portray, and settings are often so obviously a hotel room rather than, say, the White House or whatever, that you can almost here the hotel manager banging on the door and yelling, "Check time was 11 a.m.!"
