So, a new book claims that Vice President Lyndon Johnson is responsible for the assination of President John Kennedy.
I got news for ya...that was the rumor when it first happened. In fact, there was even a play about it titled Macbird. It was a parody of Shakespeare's Macbeth. "Macbird is a 1967 satire that superimposed the transferal of power following the Kennedy assination onto the plot of Shakespeare's Macbeth."
I didn't get to see the play, but I remember seeing the paperback. Macbird caused quite a stir, implying that Lyndon Johnson had a hand in the assination of President Kennedy. After all, it did happen in Texas, Johnson's home state. The author of Macbird is Barbara Garson, who says she was not seriously accusing Johnson of complicity in the Kennedy assination, but that's how people took it. A lot of theaters were pressured not to put it on, but The Village Gate in New York did. Guess what Savannahian starred in the play? Stacy Keach
Also in the class: Rue McClanahan, William Devane, Clevon Little.
