Based on C. David Heymann's book. With Stephen Collins, William Devane, Joss Ackland, Wendy Hughes. The fact that this mini-series came to be is unbelievable in itself. Roger O. Hirson scripted an almost unreadable book into three, two-hour segments which were not only comprehensive, but also intriguing. The film spans Jacqueline's life up to the late 1980's. She was still alive at the time this film aired.

Talk about A Woman Named Jackie

I was in high school during JFK's presidency, and have lived with the myth of Camelot and the dashing young man and his family since then. This book has revealed the seamy side of both Jack and Jackie, and has been an eye-opener. While an intimate portrait of Jackie has been painted, I think much of the book focused more on JFK's sex life and was a constant barrage of negatives and sensationalism. Obviously, neither one of these people were paragons of virtue but I know that regardless of their vices, they did leave some positive legacies and were bigger than life - which fooled us all in the days when Americans were impressed with wealth, high society and waste. Thank goodness, the information age has enabled the exchange of ideas, communication and the folly of worshiping not so perfect people because they are rich or have power. The integrity of Americans come from real people - and the book showed how unreal the lives of shallow people are, and how money and power can certainly bring out the worst in us. After reading this book, I will always see JFK and Jackie through different eyes; and while I'm sorry for the loss of my innocence in remembering history, am glad to have been given a glimpse of reality, so that hopefully history does not have to be repeated.
Excellent journalism and a full treatment of our fascinating, complex, beautifulfirst lady, Jackie Kennedy Onasis. Highly recommend! She is still fascinating.
After the first few pages I stopped reading page by page and missed nothing. I jut picked the book up at random and read where ever it opened. It was much the same throughout...cloyingly sweet with some sex thrown in to maintain interest. I had read one about the Kennedy's and Onassis and it was a block buster, so I compared this to that one and A Woman Named Jackie came off a looser. If you want to know it she spent a lot..yes she did...if you want to know if she could be very 'distant' with others...yes, she could...husband unfaithful? Yup...was she?...ah ha...suggestions if you read between the lines, Her taste in furnishings, jewels cloths? Well, if you don't care what you spend and the press gives you a pass...she could have work carved salt and the press would have sat on their haunches and howled. Other than that the author seems to think we really care, while the fact's just another light read.
I'm speechless! I spend a wonderful time reading this book. I was trying to find a complete bio of Jackie, and finally I found it! If I admire her before read this book, now I admire her more.
One of a kind. Simply, I feel, the best Jackie O bio written.
Really great Bio. This is our second copy and we will keep this one.
Loved every word of this book!!1 it's truly is a must read and arrived very fast.
Surprisingly, this book is better than a similar effort by Kitty Kelley (Jackie Oh!). There are a lot of historical details and it covers more of Jackie's life.
