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.

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.
