The story of U.S. President Lyndon Baines Johnson from his young days in West Texas to the White House.
Woody Harrelson was first approached about portraying LBJ by old friend and one-time roommate Rob Moran, but Woody remained hesitant. However, when Rob Reiner later broached him about the biopic Woody reconsidered.
John F. Kennedy:
When Kennedys shoot, it's usually at Nazis.
Lyndon B. Johnson: Are there many Nazis in Hyannisport?
In different scenes when LBJ and Jackie Kennedy are together, they are nearly the same height. In scenes with LBJ and Bobby Kennedy, LBJ is just an inch or two taller than Bobby.
In fact, Jackie Kennedy was 5'7" in height, while Bobby was 5'9". LBJ was 6'3" tall and he would have been much taller than them.
Even JFK was 6'0" tall yet he and Lyndon are portrayed nearly as the same height in the movie.
A quick glance at some historic photos, such as his swearing in with Jackie at his side, would reveal how inaccurate LBJ's height is portrayed in this movie.
