Movie Info

Before he becomes commander-in-chief, John F. Kennedy (Cliff Robertson) is a lieutenant, junior grade, in command of a PT-109 boat during World War II. In Leslie H. Martinson's dramatization of the future president's war efforts, Kennedy uses his family name to put himself in the action instead of shirking his duties. Assigned to battle in the Solomon Islands, he leads his crew on treacherous rescue missions. When their ship is cut down, Kennedy and his men must swim to an island for survival.

Audience Reviews for PT 109

  • Jul 03, 2009
    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.

    Very one sided account, but well done.
    Anthony V Super Reviewer

    Cliff Robertson turns in a fantastic performance as a young JFK.
