Joe Pesci as David Ferrie

Joe Pesci as David Ferrie

Facebook reminds me of one of the pleasures of Oliver Stone’s JFK: brilliant actors in complex roles.

Case in point: Joe Pesci as David Ferrie, the very weird New Orleans pilot who flitted in and out of the JFK assassination.

JFK Facts has obtained a never-before published photo of Ferrie that I will post soon.

    Great portrayal by Pesci.

      Isn’t there a photo of Ferrie, Shaw and Oswald together at a costume party in New Orleans? Or is there some dispute over who those individuals really are?

    If I had been Stone, I would have used techniques to add some height to Pesci. He is only 5′ 4″ and David Ferrie was much taller.

    The film was responsible for the ARRB, without which the firm conviction of many today in Conspiracy Reality would not be possible. All who did such an outstanding job getting into their character are to be commended for their contribution towards Truth in History regarding JFK’s Execution. Including Kevin Bacon’s composite.
    Could all these actors be united in support of FREEIGTHEFILES?
    The 1100 plus/million pages of cia files on the JFK Murder still withheld ? Their efforts would be greatly appreciated by some of their fellow American Citizens of less social stature.
