"Jackie: Behind the Myth" is one of the more misleading titles of the television season. Not only does the two-hour documentary on Jacqueline Bouvier Kennedy Onassis not take us behind the myth, it so celebrates Jackie that you are certain the final scene is going to be played out on Mount Olympus.And yet, as maddening as it is in the unpleasant facts it ignores, the documentary is ultimately quite moving. In fact, it left me feeling more kindly disposed and impressed with her than I would have believed possible after all the Jackie hagiography I have endured these past 40 years or so.But let's start with some of the more outrageous punches it pulls, given the title.
