Conspiracy Buffs Only
3 April 2004 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

My warning that only those interested in the JFK conspiracies is simply because the film is very very static and so is very dull. The trouble is that the film is the testimony that may have been heard in a trial of Oswald had one been held in early 1964. We, the audience, are the jury and we are asked to judge Oswald's guilt or innocence. But thats the problem, the film is mostly from the Jury Box point of view so it seems to be motionless. Its a dull movie that took me a couple tries to get through.

The testimony is what was known from press accounts of the time and if you've studied the case in any detail, its interesting to see what exactly was known just months after the event.

There is no real verdict and the last word delivered by the legal adviser is interesting in that its the first time anyone seemed to say that no one could put Oswald in the window.

Its an interesting curio but not one that really needs to be seen.
