The Stuff (or Snuff) of Legends., 21 September 2001
Author: Ace (danger_ace) from Perth, Western Australia

This is quite possibly the most monumental piece of live footage ever captured by an amateur photographer. The film of JFK's fatal shooting is, in itself, not particularly entertaining or interesting unless it is in a re-mastered and "shake-free" form. However, the impact of this film on the controversy surrounding one of the most famous assassinations in world history cannot be denied.

The best showcase for this piece of film can be found in Oliver Stone's brilliant film, JFK.
