In recognition of the anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, the newest installment of the PBS Web series Blank on Blank features a fascinating conversation with Grace Kelly, recorded not quite three years after the president’s death.
Kelly discusses her friendship with the Kennedy family, the first time she met JFK, and the late president’s fashion savvy. She also ponders whether Kennedy died in vain, speaking throughout not only as a “born American, but also as the wife of the head of an independent European country.”
