Goofs

When the explanation of the "double eight" system (the format the Zapruder film was shot in) is given, the graphic shows the second row of frames going in the same direction as the first row. When the supply and take-up reels are interchanged to expose the second row of frames, the film is traveling in the opposite direction. See more »

An incredible documentary
18 July 2003 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is as much a documentary as it is history. The restoration and care of the film is well documented, and then it is shown in the clearest resolution ever seen. Obviously, the most historically significant piece of motion picture film ever seen.

The film was not seen in public as a motion picture until the Jim Garrison trail of Clay Shaw brought it out of the vaults of Time-Life. The Warren Commission only saw slides which did not accurately show the head motion of the fatal shot since the FBI had put some of the slides into the carousel in the wrong order.

After bootleg copies were shown on college campuses, it became obvious that there were factors to the fatal shot that fueled the fires of possible conspiracy when it was readily apparent that the final shot was at very close range and not consistent the with downward angle from a "sixth floor" shooter.

Some researchers, after years of painstaking searching for details, have concluded that there are possibilities that even the official Zapruder film is not as reliable a source as the undamaged copies made that need to be studied as well.

Regardless of your views of the assassination, as brutal as the images are, they are truly history that every American should be aware is available to see for themselves.
