Prince Jack is a 1985 film from Castle Hill Productions which dramatizes some of the inner workings of the Kennedy administration, including efforts by Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy to address the issue of civil rights. Although primarily a dramatic narrative, Prince Jack also uses satire and black humor, especially with regard to the Kennedy brothers' complicated relationship with Lyndon B. Johnson.

Prince Jack covers the period from the Democratic National Convention in July 1960 to the autumn of 1963, just prior to the assassination of John F. Kennedy. The film was written and directed by Bert Lovitt.

  • James F. Kelly portrayed Robert F. Kennedy a total of seven times in different productions between 1981 and 1997. He also portrayed John F. Kennedy once.
