Did Jackie Kennedy influence the world?

Jacqueline ("Jackie") Kennedy Onassis was a glamorous first lady, at a time when first ladies were still generally expected to stay in the background. Her sense of style, both in personal fashion and in decorating the home, influenced the world because she and her husband were so popular. She was also admired for her poise and elegance, even when faced with her husband's infidelities. At a time when first ladies were not allowed to have careers (she had been a magazine writer and photographer), she elevated the profile of the first lady within the confines of traditional attitudes. By all accounts, she was also a devoted mother and loving wife, which the nation also found inspiring.

How did Jackie Kennedy Onassis die?

She died of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, a form of cancer which was diagnosed a couple months earlier, in January. The cancer started in her lymph nodes, but rapidly spread faster than doctors were able to treat her. This was because the healthy cells in her body were replaced by the cancerous ones. In an effort to fight the cancer, she quit her chain smoking, and curtailed some of her editing duties to devote more time to fight off the disease. By early May, doctors informed her that no further treatments could stop her death. She died on Thursday, May 19th, 1994 at 10:15 pm in her 5th Avenue Apartment in New York City, surrounded by her family and close friends.

What is Jackie Kennedy's favorite movie?

Jackie Kennedy was more of a book person than a movie person. She was more likely to go to a Broadway production or a Shakespeare play or a ballet performance. The tabloids once reported that Jackie O. was spotted at an X-Rated Movie Theater, and that she was trying to leave unnoticed. An earlier answer to this question, said the movie was 'Gone with the Wind.' If that is the case, the time period is right (she was ten when the movie was released), the leading role was played by a handsome man, Clark Gable (many of her father's friends had said he looked as handsome as Clark Gable), and the idea that Scarlet was the kind of woman that craved attention and financial status for herself and the affections of Rhett may have had a large appeal in a movie for Mrs. Kennedy.
