A Missing JFK Assassination Film

Everyone knows about the Zapruder film of President Kennedy’s assassination, and the controversy surrounding it and its ownership. Ine Gayle Nix Jackson, The Missing JFK Assassination Film: The Mystery Surrounding the Orville Nix Movie of November 22, 1963 (New York: Skyhorse Publishing, 2014) describes another, lesser-known film of the event. This chatty memoir, the author is Nix’s granddaughter, describes the nature of a film that has been missing for forty years (there are copies available) and raises questions about how federal agencies handled evidence about this murder. The book avoids wallowing in conspiracy theories, and it will be of interest to archivists and others interested in home movies and other film.
