MONDO EXTRAS

Vexingest Man Alive

America's Prince: The John F. Kennedy Jr. Story

Carolyn hugs John and Lauren when she arrives, and the strings are swelling, and the cameraman has zoomed right in on Kennedy Biographer's mouth, which was pretty scary as he explains that radar data showed John's plane made a series of turns and changes in altitude just before it crashed, suggesting disorientation.

And here's yet more faked "archival" footage of little John pretending to fly as his dad tickles him.

Cockpit. Shot of each of the doomed passengers, ALL GLUMLY LOOKING LIKE THEY'RE FLYING TO THEIR DEATHS INSTEAD OF TO A WEDDING and George Editor says that when she heard the plane had disappeared, she kept hoping that it would reappear, "like he always did." She wipes away a single tear, only to let another trickle dramatically down her cheek as she speculates that if John saw all the fuss being made over his death, he'd say something like, "Slow news day?," her voice cracking. And unfortunately, the last word is given to the overweening Kennedy Friend, who expounds some story about John reading a Stephen Spender poem that goes, "Born of the sun/ They traveled a short while toward the sun/ And left the vivid air/ Signed with their honour," whatever the hell that has to do with anything. Nice movie, TBS. I am in fact starting to wonder just why they call you the Superstation.
