Did You Know?

When the film was released publicly in 1975 many people assumed that Mrs. Kennedy jumped on the trunk after the shooting because she was frightened and trying to get out of the way. Some years later the secret service that jumped onto the bumper revealed that she was actually trying to retrieve a piece of the president's head that had landed on the back of the car.See more »

Historic, 10 August 1999
Author: Vincent-11 from Austin TX

This is a strange piece of film to "rate." It's only 26 seconds of some of the most historic (and gruesome) film ever captured -- by chance as much as anything. One wonders what the results would be these days when every third person on the parade route would be wielding a cam-corder.
