Movie Info

The death of John F. Kennedy Jr. in 1963 gave the nation a reason to grieve. Now, decades after his passing, the darker side of this charismatic leader is just beginning to surface. Peter Jennings hosts this unusual look back at the life of the 35th President of the United States. Dangerous World: The Kennedy Years shies away from nothing while exploring allegations about JFK. The program begins with mob associations and delves into assassination attempts on Fidel Castro and multiple extramarital affairs. Interviews with former government workers, personal letters, and official documents make up the meat of the story. Though many still hold with Kennedy's solid reputation, this ABC exposé dares to suggest otherwise.

Audience Reviews for Dangerous World: The Kennedy Years


This is very well done. The sensationalism is kept to a minimum. ABC News did an excellent job with documenting the incidents included. Judith Campbell Exner, the mistress of [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/U.S._president"]U.S. president[/url] [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_F._Kennedy"]John F. Kennedy[/url] and [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mafia"]Mafia[/url] leaders [url="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_Giancana"]Sam Giancana[/url] spoke about her affair with JFK and how she was sent to do just that with JFK by Sam Giancana. The one most startling was the woman from East Germany who was supposedly a refugee; Kennedy had sex right in the White House with her while Jackie was gone. Could she have been a plant, a spy? What if she had had poison under finger nails? I have always been a Kennedy fan but he certainly played loose and careless with "his women".
