There is… all of a sudden, fifty years later… another film of the JFK assassination. The only-seen-by a handful of people “new” film claims to have footage of a rifle shooting from the grassy knoll. The film is in the hands of a Texas real estate developer who is now shopping the newly discovered film to various media outlets. It was held by a TV producer for forty years. The article does not say whether the news producer shot the film or why he had the film or why he kept it under wraps for forty years.
One person who saw a portion of the film told TheWrap:
“You can see a guy in the bushes with a gun,” said one of those individuals. “It looks like real footage, though I am not an expert.”
“Although the film shot by Abraham Zapruder is the most famous footage of the JFK assassination, literally dozens of cameras — both motion and single-frame — were in use that day in Dealey Plaza.
Researchers have accounted for at least 32 of them — one of the most compelling being uncovered by the Discovery Channel’s Unsolved History series — and yet none caught anything beyond the brutal, appalling death of one man.”
Seconds after the shots were fired, he screamed, “They killed him!” He told bystanders. He called his son in Washington, who had heard that Kennedy was wounded, and said, “No, he’s dead.” Abraham Zapruder knew instantly that Kennedy was dead as he was filming his now-famous movie of the assassination… MORE from TheWashingtonPost.
On a much better note: It’s great to know that Kennedy cousin, Michael Skakel, who was convicted of murdering neighbor, Martha Moxley, is getting a new trial. It’s even better knowing that Skakel somehow pulled together enough cash for his $1.2 million bond and will be spending Thanksgiving and Christmas at home. You can see Skakel and listen to the BS his attorney is spewing at CNN.com.
