Great Cast & Story - Magnificent Acting
21 December 1999 | by (2 Blocks of Pier 17 - NYC) – See all my reviews

I have yet to see a better ensemble of actors/actresses portraying the life around the Great Greek Tycoon & his relationship w/ the Kennedys' & especially Jackie O. Anthony Quinn & Raul Julia are superb in their roles & the many many cast members are simply divine in their realm. It is rather surprising that this movie extraordinare was made for TV & never reached the big screen. But as we all now, there are many great flicks which never made the big Hollywood bucks & which should be remembered for a very long time. I highly suggest that, if you can somehow get your hands on this piece, to really free an evening & enjoy this great movie. **** out of 4
