  • Sometimes the ordinary obscure person is involved an event that they will be remembered by the world forever for- on November 22, 1963 that happened to a Russian-Ukrainian born-American clothing manufacturer with a home movie camera. Abraham Zapruder was his name- at the time he was in his mid-50’s and happened to take his camera out on Dealey Plaza in Dallas to capture President John Kennedy passing by in a motorcade through town. What he captured on film was JFK’s assassination. Is there a more famous piece of film? On this day in 1970 Zapruder died at the age of 65 years old.

  1. The Zapruder film clearly shows that Kennedy was shot from the front and that there were three rows of people in that car, not two as everyone claims.

    Is that Pete Townshend jumping up?
