RT Book, Whole DB /z-wcorg/ DS http://worldcat.org ID 52478401 LA English T1 The Zapruder film : reframing JFK's assassination A1 Wrone, David R., PB University Press of Kansas PP Lawrence, Kan. YR 2003 SN 0700612912 9780700612918 AB "In 486 frames - a mere six feet of celluloid - Abraham Zapruder's iconic film captures from beginning to end the murder of President John F. Kennedy in broad daylight. An essential piece of evidence, the film has become nearly synonymous with the assassination itself and has generated decades of debate among conspiracy theorists and defenders of the Warren Commission's official report. Until now, however, no scholar has produced a comprehensive book-length study of the film and its relation to the tragic events of November 22, 1963." "David Wrone, one of our nation's foremost authorities on the assassination, reexamines Zapruder's film with a fresh eye and a deep knowledge of the forensic evidence. He traces the film's forty-year history from its creation on the "grassy knoll" by Dallas dress manufacturer Zapruder through its initial sale to Life magazine and early reproductions and its analysis by the Warren Commission and countless assassination researchers, licensing by the Zapruder family, legal battles over bootleg copies, and sale to the federal government for sixteen million dollars."--Jacket.
