Goofs

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 »

There will never be a better acting job as LBJ than this one
17 November 2004 | by (Burnet, Texas North America) – See all my reviews

Many actors have played, or attempted to play, LBJ. Some have done quite well. But NONE will ever be better at playing LBJ during his early years than Randy Quaid, for several reasons. - No. 1: he does not have to fake a Texas accent. Many performers overdo it or try to use a generic southern accent. Quaid has it nailed - maybe because he is a Texas native himself. - No. 2: He has the look of a real rake. (Yes, LBJ was one. Let's face it.) When he is commenting to one of the Kennedys (JFK or RFK, I can't remember which one) he says, with a leer, "She'll take dictation any time!" He puts an unmistakable emphasis on the first syllable of the word 'dictation'. - No. 3: He displays convincing temper fits. LBJ was not known for being patient or suffering fools gladly...
