About that film from Dallas

Thanks to the miracle of crowdsourcing, we have a definitive answer to Vanessa’s question about a film taken in the presidential motorcade on November 22, 1963. It was taken by JFK’s aide David Powers.

Powers gave the three-minute film to the Assassination Records Review Board in 1996. The film stops well before the motorcade reached Dealey Plaza because Powers’ camera ran out of film.

Thanks to everybody who provided information.
