This sweeping mini-series profiling the Kennedy family ran three nights. The film chronicles 55 years in the lives of the family opening in 1906 with the marriage of Joseph P. Kennedy, a Harvard graduate, to Rose Fitzgerald, the daughter of Boston's Mayor. The first night focuses on the marriage's troubled years and Rose's strength in developing a real family. The second night covered the years of 1928 - 1940 and Jospeh's years as working as a movie producer and then an ambassador. The final night follows the Kennedy's tragedies during World War II and follows the post war years political successes of John Kennedy. Written by

I was one of the featured Chauffeurs in this ABC Mini Series. I live in Rhode Island and was chosen because I was driving for the company that had most of the antiques used for the film. I have a copy of the original poster also. Lots of fun filming with Annette O'Toole, Charles Durning, William Peterson, Steven Weber, Tracy Pollan, etc. Great cast.....and got to drive some nice cars. Featured in the 40's driving the Silver 1940 Buick limousine. Also drove a 1926 Hudson to the set from time to time. I have a copy on VHS that I made while watching on the premier nights on television back in 1990, edited most of the commercials, and just made a DVD copy as well.
