JFK as most remember him. Fine performance by Robertson.

Audience Reviews for PT 109

Way below average American Propandha movie with no story. To make things worse, the protagonist is none other the good ol' JFK. Expect an episodic obstacle course which is tackled by easy-going Cowboy GIs with million dollar smiles. There is nothing to see here, keep walking.
