When he was assassinated fifty years ago on November 22, 1963, U.S. President John F. Kennedy became less a man than a myth, defined by the unfulfilled promise of the vigor and glamour he brought to the White House. On this edition of The Enright Files, Michael Enright looks at the man, the myth and the assassination. He speaks to Kennedy biographer Robert Dallek, and to legendary prosecutor Vincent Bugliosi, whose books on the assassination refuted the conspiracy theories that still swirl around it.Camelot's Court: Inside The Kennedy White House by Robert Dallek is published by Harper Collins.
