Sheryl Ann DuJean:
I'm Candy Cane, fresh out of nowhere. An hour ago you billed me as Las Vegas hot sauce. Tomorrow you headline me as a virgin schoolgirl from Carolina. I'm whatever you say.
The assassination sequence portrays, as a number of films do, live TV pictures of the motorcade. There was no live TV coverage and much the footage shown in the film as "live" was first broadcast on the evening of November 22, 1963 as it had been filmed earlier that day.
A version of the film aired on the U.S A&E network in the early 2000s removed around 20 minutes of footage including the entire Cuban sequence (and references to it later in the film).
