New JFK Footage Released After More Than 40 Years
Posted on Feb 20, 2007
George Jefferies didn’t think his film of JFK’s last moments was all that interesting, so he simply held on to it for more than four decades. But Gary Mack, curator of the Dallas museum now in possession of the footage, said the new images will offer fodder to conspiracy theorists because of a detail involving the president’s jacket.
The film shows the president’s coat bunched up on his back - a detail some will see as evidence that the bullet wounds on the president’s body did not match those on his jacket.
The film also shows “the clearest, best film of Jackie in the motorcade”, says Mr Mack.
Also visible is secret service agent Clint Hill, riding on the back of the car. After the shots were fired, Mr Hill jumped onto the back of the vehicle and drove with it to the hospital.
The new film only came to light when Mr Jefferies mentioned it in conversation to his son-in-law, Wayne Graham, who persuaded him to donate it to the museum.
