Comparing the Zapruder and Nix films

Nix Film

Cranor’s question: Where is the Zapruder frame equivalent to this Nix frame?

I’ve always been skeptical of the theory Abraham Zapruder’s home movie of JFK’s assassination has been altered. Doug Horne’s groundbreaking interview with CIA photo analyst Dino Brugioni convinced me it was possible the film was altered en route to Washington on the weekend of November 22-24, 1963, but I did not find proof it had been altered.
In this interesting piece for WhoWhatWhy Millicent Cranor addresses the obvious issues: if the Z-film was altered, other photography at the crime scene should contain images not found on the Z-film. Her findings surprised me. Read more

Doug Horne rebuts John McAdams

I began writing this opinion piece in response to one specific John McAdams comment in the thread following Peter Voskamp’s interview of Richard Stolley of LIFE magazine, about his involvement with the Zapruder film the weekend of JFK’s assassination.

The response I was writing evolved and morphed into something bigger as I was composing it. It is really about much more than just the one specific comment I am rebutting; it is about a much bigger issue — namely, the negative tone and apparent intent to disrupt, and ridicule, that John McAdams too often brings to the JFKFACTS site, and to other JFK chat rooms.

CIA chief told RFK about two shooters in Dallas

RFK and John McCone

Why did Attorney General Robert F. Kennedy believe that his brother President John F. Kennedy was the victim of a conspiracy, as his son recently said?

Did RFK have any evidence for his belief, asked several readers who had seen the widespread coverage of RFK Jr.’s comments

It turns out RFK had it on good authority that two people were involved.

What did George de Mohrenschildt say about Lee Oswald?

I am a Patsy! – The Lost Tapes of George de Mohrenschildt from E2 Films on Vimeo.

George de Mohrenschildt was a fascinating character who would fit into a comic but world-weary spy novel by Graham Greene. And he was good friends with Lee Oswald, the man who supposedly killed President Kennedy. De Morhenschildt doubted that his friend was the author of Kennedy’s death. At the end of his life, he was not afraid to say so. Read more

On Jeremy Gunn’s speech about JFK evidence

As a person who was hired by Jeremy Gunn in 1995, and who worked closely under him (and with him) from August of 1995 until his abrupt  resignation from the Assassination Records Review Board  in July of 1998, I watched his presentation with great interest.

Did JFK’s limousine come to a stop amid the gunfire?

Watch this video, especially at the 1:19 mark. It is one reason why I no longer dismiss the idea that Abraham Zapruder’s film of JFK’s assassination was altered.

Thanks to Doug Horne’s interview with Dino Brugioni, the CIA’s leading photo analyst, I have had to revisit my previous skepticism. Brugioni viewed the Zapruder film not long after it was delivered to the CIA on November 23, 1963, and he recalls seeing imagery that does not appear in the film that is now in the National Archives.

Doug Horne zooms in on the Zapruder film

This just in from Doug Horne:

As seen in ‘Parkland,” Abraham Zapruder filmed JFK’s assassination.

First, I want to thank Jeff for posting this interview (without yet watching it) in spite of the fact that he has always been skeptical about the Zapruder film’s supposed alteration (which I believe really did happen, for a host of reasons). This speaks well to his attitude about evidence; i.e., his willingness to consider new evidence and to follow wherever it may lead, and to permit and even encourage open debate, rather than suppressing uncomfortable or opposing opinions expressed by others. Thanks, Jeff, for supporting the scientific method.

Second,  some of the comments in this thread following the video reveal that others are simply not as familiar with this material as I am, or that they may not have fully paid attention during the interview. I hope the points I make below are useful to anyone who watches the video: Read more
