The Kennedys were shaped by their culture, the Kennedys were shaped by their religion, and for them that meant embracing the crowd. They were part of the fabric of the city.” - Chris Kennedy

OMG ! I have NEVER seen this version, it’s super rare ! *Joan smiling at Kara aw*


I would say of all the Kennedy kids, Bobby was the most Irish. He seems to be pretty at home in Ireland and he seems to have sorbed his national identity more than the others because you know to be a young Kennedy was to overcome being Irish. Bobby seemed to actually have fun in these movies, something that he didn’t always have as a little kid. But he had an impish, playful side to him, and it comes through in these movies. Some of his charm, you can see it there as he’s doffing his cap.”  –Evan Thomas in The Lost Kennedy Home Movies
