During the debates in the White House, it is mentioned what type of aircraft should replace or augment the U2 to make reconnaissance flights; a "Navy P8U" is mentioned, possibly what was meant as the correct type was F8U, the F8U-IP Crusader, was a fighter aircraft modified for reconnaissance photography. The type served in the Naval Air Service from 1956 until 1999 in the carrier fleet. See more »
This really impressed me when first I viewed it in '74. The real standout was William Devane as JFK. One of the most realistic pieces of casting and portrayls I've seen! Only on the close ups could you tell that it was Devane. His accent and demeanour were perfection. In other words he was JFK!
Everyone else was superb as was the story, camera work, direction etc. The casting was brilliant and more than that REAL! This was truly a winner from start to finish.
