Summary
A granddaughter's quest for answers sheds new light on one of history's most enduring questions: Was there a conspiracy to kill President John F. Kennedy? Abraham Zapruder's film gets all the attention, but there was another eyewitness to history whose tale has yet to be told. In this eye-opening account, Gayle Nix Jackson tells the story of her grandfather, Orville Nix, a man with a camera who happened to be on the ground for a life-changing-world-changing, and in some ways world-ending-event: the murder of President Kennedy in Dallas in 1963. The Missing JFK Assassination Film is not the typical JFK assassination book. This book does not attempt to answer the question of who killed John F. Kennedy; instead, it addresses why we should question the actions of those involved and why the truth was withheld from the people. Though copies of Orville's film exist, the original film is missing. Why? The FBI confiscated the photographer's camera for several months, then returned it in pieces. Were these actions sinister or were they just examples of governmental incompetence? The Missing JFK Assassination Film exposes information about the House Select Committee staff's involvement in the missing film. The author's interviews with people who were close to Orville shed light on the government's involvement with the filmmaker. And her memories of growing up with her beloved grandfather-and on how his views changed after that fateful day-fuel a quest Jackson is still on to find the film
