Synopsis


PT 109
This WW II adventure chronicles the real-life courage of President John F. Kennedy when he was a Navy lieutenant in charge of the illustrious PT 109. Among the adventures they had was the courageous rescue of Marines stranded upon the isle of Choiseul. As they flee, their little boat is split in half by a Japanese destroyer. The survivors then make a long, dangerous swim to an island. One of them is too badly injured to do it, so Kennedy helps him. Later, the future leader braves many dangers to get to another island to radio for help. This video also contains a newsreel chronicling the President's assassination and a cartoon short featuring Foghorn Leghorn. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    This is well made. Some people have been critical of the favorable presentation of President Kennedy. First, the movie is historically accurate with a minor exception of sequence of an event. Second, President Kennedy was a natural leader and cared greatly for the men under his command. Watch it, it won't be a waste of your time.
