Storyline

After JFK's presidential election, pa's influence still suffices to make Jack appoint brother Robert attorney general. Founding FBI director Hoover is furious and won't rest until he has photographic evidence of JFK's adultery with a call-girl connected to a political adversary. Following miserable CIA information and joint chiefs advice, JFK approves the disastrously ill-planned Bay of Pigs military landing on Cuba to overturn Castro. The utter disaster nearly wrecks his reputation, but Bobby's advice to openly take the blame on TV limits the ratings damage remarkably. Written by KGF Vissers

Goofs

Bobby is telling Jack that Jackie tried to call him, and Jack wasn't in the residence. Bobby said he told Jackie that Jack was exhausted, and probably unplugged the telephone. In the early 60's, phones could not be "unplugged" like phones can be today. See more »
