Storyline

Joseph Kennedy Jr. was the eldest son of the Kennedy clan. He grew up having to deal with being humiliated and the prejudices of being an Irish Catholic. His father then tells him that the best way to get back at them is make a big impact in politics, in other words to one day be the President of the United States, and he wishes to do so. But first he has to survive World War II, and also he has to do something to make a splash like his brother, Jack who was awarded the Navy and Marine Corps Medal in 1943 following his exploits commanding PT 109.

Exciting movie, I was in a unbilled bit role.
15 November 2014 | by See all my reviews

Filmed in Seattle's,Pioneer Square location,this film was big news in '76.I was young and eager to learn the craft, (as this was my 2nd film to be in). The bar room scenes,and Joe as a boy, were favorites.I studied Peter Strauss and Barbara Parkins acting,and they were fantastic in their love scenes! B. Parkins, was very stunning! The war scenes were very realistic,as were the ballroom scenes, filmed in the(then)Olympic Hotel.I met most of the leads and crew, and it one of the highlights of my early career in films,stage and TV.I was only 23 and tried out for the comedy, buddy role...but lost out to a stronger contender! So I was cast in a bit role. I'll never forget the marriage scene! I found the director was very easy to take direction from, and the whole cast and crew worked well together! I wish the film would be played more! I keep watching for it to come on TV (even though I have my own copy)! I've got great memories,I loved working in this film, and loved my experiences in it! Thanks for the memories, Gary Zahnow
