What’s the movie about?
The story of the assassination of U.S. Senator Robert F. Kennedy, who was shot in the Ambassador Hotel in Los Angeles, California, in the early morning hours of June 5, 1968, and of twenty-two people in the hotel whose lives were never the same.

  1. 10/29/23 Thank you for the net’s ONLY (almost) complete list of songs for “Bobby” – whom I campaigned for. But, FYI, there are 23 songs (maybe more) in this movie. You forgot South African Hugh Masakela’s big instrumental hit on the trumpet, “Grazin’ In The Grass” (played right after South African singer Miriam Makeba’s big hit, “Pata Pata” – means “Touch, Touch” in Xosha). You also forgot “Anji” – an acoustic guitar solo by Jason Huxley – played several times I believe. I think it was first heard in the uncomfortable elevator scene between Heather Graham & Christian Slater as she was on her way to “see” 😏😉William H. Macy.

  2. 10/29/23 RFK – or “BOBBY” – was shot on 6/5/1968 & died on 6/6/1968 at Good Samaritan Hosp. (Where I was born.) The 22 ppl you refer to are all fictional – except for 2. The movie credits give the history of the doorman, who died in … 1965. The real busboy who cradled Sen. Kennedy’s head & gave him a Rosary as he lay dying was JUAN ROMERO. He had undiagnosed PTSD for most of his life. Singer/Actor Harry Belafonte worked closely with Rev. Dr. M. L. King, Jr., & was an avid Civil Rights activist since the 1950s up until his passing in April of 2023..
