Summary:
This volume examines various representation of John F. Kennedy on film, from fictionalized accounts of his wartime exploits-PT-109 (1963)-to his presidency, his assassination, and his legacy. With a focus on docudramas, the book looks at how such films keep the myth of Kennedy and Camelot alive.
