A combination of Fact & Fiction Untouchables Style
19 January 2003 | by (Midwest United States) – See all my reviews

This TV Movie recalls facts concerning the actual attempted assassination of FDR in Miami. If you remember the Series The Untouchables with Robert Stack, then you will like this TV movie. This movie appeared long before Oliver Stone's JFK, but the combination of villains as seen in this movie calls to mind some issues regarding the JFK movie here. That being the Mob and a loner as highlighted in this movie. More then that, this movie was released several years before Kennedy's assassination.
