There's wheat here, but beware of the chaff
18 February 2003 | by (Havelock NC USA) – See all my reviews

"The Men Who Killed Kennedy" (known as TMWKK from hereon out) is in my opinion, the best documentary on the Kennedy case. Produced in 1988, it covered the Kennedy case from almost every angle. Bill Kurtis was the narrator of the US edition and Hilary Minster narrated the British version. (I had the second British version of the documentary; my review is based on it). The theory put forward in TMWKK is that a team of three French assassins pulled off the assassination. One of the assassins was dead. The other two (as of 1988) were still living. Herein lays the first piece of chaff in the pile of wheat. One of the two assassins named in the series threatened to sue the TV network that put together TMWKK. Apologies were made, and the series was rewritten to remove the names of the other two "assassins." The other pieces of chaff concern the witness statements of Gordon Arnold and Beverly Oliver. In 1978, Arnold told a tale that he was on the grassy knoll the day of the assassination and had been filming the motorcade with a movie camera. It was later discovered he was not in Dallas. Oliver was a nightclub singer and claimed to be the 'Babushka Lady' who was in Dealey Plaza that day. The jury is still out on her story. To quote Gary Mack (a researcher who is in TMWKK), 'While much of the original five-part production holds up well today, some is outdated or contradicted by new information.' Above all, do you own thinking! Don't let this documentary or anything else by your guide.
