Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
This three-part dramatic series about Jackie Kennedy Onassis' life stars Roma Downey, Stephen Collins, and William Devane. In this first episode, viewers see young Jackie Bouvier growing up in Southampton, NY, where she was born. Her financially privileged early life allowed her to become a highly popular 1940s debutante. She would not meet Jack Kennedy, her future husband and America's 35th president, until she was a bit older. This first episode sheds some light on young Jackie Bouvier's father, a man who shared some regrettable character traits with Jack Kennedy.
