Jackie's beauty has been magnified ten-fold. Her nerves have

vanished. She smiles, radiant, and the show is on...

COLLINGSWOOD:

Mrs. Kennedy I want to thank youfor letting us visit your officialhome.

(beat)

This is obviously the room fromwhich most of your work on it isdirected...

All around them, ANTIQUE FURNITURE is arranged in variousstates of restoration and disrepair.

JACKIE:

(playful)

Yes, it's attic and the cellar all

in one. Since our work started we

received hundreds of letters everyday. This is where we evaluate allof the finds and see if we want to

keep them if they’ll fit into ourbudget.

COLLINGSWOOD:

Mrs. Kennedy, every first lady andevery administration sincePresident Madison's time, has made

changes greater or smaller in theWhite House.

Jackie steals a glance off-camera. With a quiet gesture -Nancy

reminds her to smile.

7.

COLLINGSWOOD (CONT’D)

Before we look at some of the

changes you've made...What's your

basic plan?

A beat, as Jackie considers her motivation. And then, from

the heart -

JACKIE:

Well, I really don't have one.

Because I think this house will

always grow and should. It just

seemed to me such a shame when we

came here, to find hardly anything

of the past in the house. Hardly

anything before 19-2.

Off-camera Nancy looks at her notes, nodding along toJackie’s words.

COLLINGSWOOD:

Now suppose you and your committee

were to acquire some of the things

that are in this room, what happens

when the next President’s wife

comes into the White House?

JACKIE:

Well if they don’t want it...in the

past, you see, they could sell it

or throw it out.

CUT TO:

EXT. KENNEDY COMPOUND -DECK-DAY

Jackie continues the interview with the Journalist.

JOURNALIST:

And the talk of the tax payer money
