Description

In the era of nuclear confrontation, John F. Kennedy attempted to prevent war six times during his short tenure as president. He didn't live to face a seventh. Virtual JFK: Vietnam If Kennedy Had Lived takes up one of America's controversial "what if" scenarios, examining the question: Would the U.S. have escalated the war in Vietnam if Kennedy was not assassinated in 1963? With insight and erudition, the film traces JFK's presidency - a 1,000-day term plagued with tense political stand-offs - through rare and previously-unseen archival footage, offering nuanced accounts of the former president's political decisions and, by extension, his probable response to the escalating conflict in Vietnam. Featuring unprecedented access into the leadership style of one of the nation's most important leaders, Virtual JFK sheds new light on the man who helped avoid war in six crises and did not live to save America from the devastating war in Vietnam.

    Yes, this film get great ratings...and my comments will mean almost nothing on the global stage. If anyone reads this, if you are on the fence about seeing this film...consider this: The content, interviews and spending time back in the early sixties...it's worth the rent. Kennedy was one of the greatest Presidents we will have had in our history. Many people complain about JFK, mostly women, because of the sexual scandel we have been fed for so many years. Really, a insignificant point...quite stupid...blind to the fact that Kennedy might have saved the world from a nuclear holocaust...more than once during his term. Glad iTunes makes this available!
