Trivia

Kevin Conroy who plays Edward 'Ted' Kennedy in this series later became the voice of Batman on Batman: The Animated Series (1992). JFK's real-life press secretary, Pierre Salinger (portrayed in this series by Peter Boyden) played a villain on Batman (1966). See more »

Goofs

In the scene between Jackie and her assistant Bess in the car following their pre inauguration visit, there are several indications that this movie was filmed in the early 80s. First, if you look over Blair Brown's right shoulder as the car moves down the street, you'll notice a current version of a "Do Not Enter" street sign. It's the kind with the big red circle with a white line going through it. Those type of street signs didn't appear across America until the 1970s. As the car continues to move down the street, immediately behind it are a few other automobiles from that time period. However, again over Blair Brown's shoulder, you'll notice the car passes several 80s era vehicles which are parked. See more »

An excellent film
22 November 2006 | by crockett3663See all my reviews

I've owned this movie on VHS for some time, and being a Kennedy fanatic, it is one of my all-time favorites. I love Martin Sheen's portrayal of JFK, and Blair Brown's resemblance to Jackie is almost eery. I do wish the writers would have had the courage to actually name Marilyn Monroe and all of JFK's other dalliances; it would have made the film that much more respectable. EG Marshall and Geraldine Fitzgerald's appearances as Joe and Rose Kennedy were right on the money.

I would have liked to see a different actor portray MLK. The guy they had didn't really look like him at all--he was too tall and his face didn't have that pudgier look that we all remember.

Finally, the assassination scene, while obviously needed, was poorly constructed. It was obvious to anyone who lived through that day or is an conspiracy buff that the scene wasn't filmed anywhere near Dallas. For comparison purposes, Oliver Stone's re-creation for "JFK" was much, much better.

Overall, this is an excellent movie, and I would recommend it to anyone seeking more knowledge of the Kennedy administration and family, as well as Kennedy the man.
