This sweeping mini-series profiling the Kennedy family ran three nights. The film chronicles 55 years in the lives of the family opening in 1906 with the marriage of Joseph P. Kennedy, a Harvard graduate, to Rose Fitzgerald, the daughter of Boston's Mayor. The first night focuses on the marriage's troubled years and Rose's strength in developing a real family. The second night covered the years of 1928 - 1940 and Jospeh's years as working as a movie producer and then an ambassador. The final night follows the Kennedy's tragedies during World War II and follows the post war years political successes of John Kennedy.Written by

I was an extra on one scene in this film. The staging area was the Catholic Cathedral of the Holy Cross in the South End of Boston. The scene was filmed in a bar on Shawmut Ave around the corner (I don't remember the name of the bar).
The scene is where JFK enters the bar with a campaign aide who introduces him as "This is John Kennedy who's running for congress in the eleventh district." A guy at the bar says " Yeah, you and eight other guys." I'm the bartender who smiles and laughs in the background.
Prior to that I was an extra on "Dragnet" (the 1987 version with Dan Aykroyd and Tom Hanks and on "Hanoi Hilton" (I've posted a comment on Hanoi Hilton on this site).
The casting agency called me back for other productions but I had found other work which worked out well and now I'm retired and living in the Caribbean.
Working as an extra on three productions was a fascinating experience.
