There are two clear errors during the JFK assassination sequence.
LBJ and Lady Bird arrive at Parkland Hospital in a black Cadillac limousine sedan. In fact, they were riding in a light colored Lincoln convertible. An American flag covers JFK's coffin when it is removed from the ambulance at Love Field and when Jackie is setting next to it on Air Force One. It was not covered with a flag until it left Bethesda Naval Hospital early the next day. See more »
Solid recap of LBJ's climb obviously told in shorthand-a necessary evil due to the constraints of its TV format. Still you do get a feeling for the hard charging bull from Texas who confounded many when he emerged as a great advocate for civil rights. Quaid is excellent in the lead, a very good actor whose reputation has now been sullied by bizarre off screen behavior. He and Lupone who are seemingly an odd match work well together as Lyndon and Lady Bird, who even though they forged a strong bond themselves were an unusual match as is shown here. Patti Lupone in her limited screen time tries to show the grit under Lady Bird's soft demeanor. For history buffs and biography fans a worthy entry.
