See the "Rather Lies" page for the chronology of what happened to the Zapruder Film.
Once in the hands of the Gov't/Media it was Secreted away for over a dozen years and it's contents Lied about by Gov't/Media.
After it was shown on National TV in 1975 Life magazine sold it back to the Zapruder family for $1.00. (the cat was outta the bag)
Life initially paid $150,000. for the film.
Two weeks after the Assassination Life LIED about what was on the Film we were never going to see. (See Media page)
The Warren Commission printed 2 frames per page in volume XVIII.
The Fatal head shot occurred at frame 313. Frames 314-315 were "Transposed" in Volume XVIII giving the impression that the head was driven Forward.
After reading Zapruder's testimony I knew that he had his camera set on Full Telephoto (Zoom).
When I saw the Zapruder Film I was perplexed seeing the Film "ZOOM IN" after the Limo passed the Stemmons Freeway Sign and the First Light pole.
I then remembered the First reports in the Dallas Newspapers stating that Governor Connally was shot in the Chest.
I also remembered Dan Rather's Narration of the Film Saturday 11/23/63.
Rather also stated that Connally was shot in the chest
At a point in time someone (anonymously) sent me a video tape of the Zapruder Film.
I could Clearly see that someone had put a Black Bar accross JBC's chest, blocking out from his chin down to his naval.
I could see above/below the black bar.
The Official Proof came when I looked in my set of the HSCA Volumes.
There in Volume 1 I found the following starting on page 81.
