Movie Reviews

(5 out of 5 stars)

"The writer/producer of the film has completed an in depth view of Jacqueline as a wonderful book editor. Read 'Jackie Beyond the Myth of Camelot' if you wish to discover all the authors Jackie edited. Book includes Peter, Beard, Louis Auchincloss, Peter Sis, dancers Martha Graham, Judith Jamison, Balanchine, and Edvard Radzinsky, and over forty fascinating authors, poets, photographers, and artists."
Very informative

"This is a great video. It shows many rare clips I'd never seen before. Though I'd already read a few books on Jackie I still learned new info. Covers her life from birth to death (not just the presidency years). I highly recommend it for both ardent fans, and people just learning about her."
The embodiment of the term First Lady

"I just saw this video on PBS and was incredibly moved. I have always admired her strength, intelligence, style, and devotion to her children, all of which is represented in the video. It is particulary strong in demonstrating just how committed she was in bringing the arts to the White House and to the American people. It was stunning and thought-provoking when one of the commentators on the video stated that Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis was the last public figure to champion the arts. The incredible wealth of footage and newsreels combined with the interviews with friends and colleagues provide a sensitive, warm tribute to one of our country's most special and respected women."
Not impressed

"I was totally not happy with this DVD. It's kind of boring and I hated the voice overs. The chick that was reading Jackie's diaries was so lame. Don't waste your money on this one. I wished it had more pics of Jackie instead of scenery pictures of Rhode Island and Virginia and DC and NYC. I wouldn't recomend it."
