Regardless of this documentary's cover photo of Jacqueline Bouvier being one of the most unflattering imaginable - (IMO) - This 2-hour, PBS biography (from 1999), showcasing this much-admired woman, was, without question, a first-rate presentation from start to finish.

Impressively directed (and co-written) by Suzanne Bauman - "Jackie: Behind the Myth" takes an in-depth look at one of the most idolized and respected American women of the 20th century.

Through stills, interviews, and archival footage - We, as the viewer, are brought directly into the life and times of Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis.

*Note* - In 1994 - Jacqueline Bouvier (65 at the time) died after suffering from a long battle with cancer.

Very much enjoyed. Best insight into the person she was that I've seen.

Good enough documentary.

I loved the journal/book her sister, Lee, and Jackie made when they traveled together to Europe and such.

Also, I didn't much realize that her voice made her sound rather air-headed. too bad.

But, she was a great preservationist and I captured this great quote from her:

"When civilization is in crisis, to preserve is to create."

This DVD is a beautiful tribute to the greatest American lady who ever lived.
