Lawrence Schiller

Recommended Posts

Lawrence Schiller was in Dallas over the assassination weekend, as he took an interesting photo of an annimated Oswald, and the alleged assassination rifle being held up.

See: Photos scroll down - to #9 and 10 - And who is #11?

http://www.younggalleryphoto.com/photograp...r/schiller.html

He also is reported to have a photo of Jack Ruby, though I've yet to see that.

Schiller assisted his good friend Norman Mailer in writing about Oswald, and co-authored the unflattering profile of early critics in the paperback The Scavengers and Critics of the Warren Report.

I just started looking into Schiller because someone had suggested that the man in the backyard posing in the photo John Simkin posted for me was Lawrence Schiller, but it certainly isn't Schiller.

The other man in the backyard photos:

This person may be posing in the backyard at the direction of Schiller however, as I have yet to ascertain who the guy really is.

Does anybody know who this guy is?

He certainly looks familiar. Is it a Dallas cop?

In the meantime, while looking into Schiller's background, I discovered that he not only is a scavanger himself, having done Whitewash jobs of Lenny Bruce, Monroe and others, he also directed a movie The Plot to Kill Hitler - a major motion picture released in 1990, about the Valkyrie plot.

Directed by: Lawrence Schiller

Writers: Steven Elkins

Duration: 94 min.

Rating: 8.45 / 10

In the last days of Nazi Germany, a group of senior officers, led by aristocrat, Colonel Claus von Stauffenberg risking all to save what was still the war-damaged nation. Their goal: to kill the Fuhrer in a strategic meeting at the Wolf's rampart. Operation Valkyrie - a rescue plan for the Third Reich, could change the fate of the bloody World War II. A moving film showing an amazing tale of sacrifice and heroism, which have been behind the plan.

Those with interest in the path that led Norman Mailer to write "Oswald's Tale" and appear in "Oswald's Ghost" by Robert Stone may like to examine Mailer's long involvement with Schiller as co-author, photographer, researcher, etc....

Lawrence Schiller and Billy Woodfield (the latter -Jack's biographer, of sorts) were "Two free lance photographers . . . " spent time shooting stills of Marilyn Monroe in her last unfinished film "Something's Got to Give". Schiller was also one of the few last people to see Marilyn alive On Saturday, August 4 (1962) when, at around 10 AM he arrived at her home saying he had come to discuss a magazine feature exploiting the pictures taken on the set of "Something's Got to Give".

MARILYN MONROE, The Biography. Donald Spoto, 1993. pp 354 524, 566.

Somewhere (I hate to be vague - but I cannot locate where I found this information but maybe it is known or has been posted here at one time or another) I read where it was Schiller who accompanied Earl Ruby when a tape recorder was secreted into Jack's room at the hospital and he made a final statement accepting all blame for the shooting of Oswald.

The backyard photo pose of the unknown man was given to me as a slide copy

in 1975 by Fred Newcomb. Handwritten on the slide mount is LAWRENCE SCHILLER.

I have no idea what the meaning of the writing was. I always assumed that the

photo was from Schiller.

Hi Martha,

Thanks for chiming in.

I'm not usually one to judge a person, but this guy Schiller is something else.

He hawks a tape recording of a Ruby deathbed interview, tells the FBI who one of Mark Lane's confidential informants is, and is hired by Life Mag as a specialist on homosexuals to write an analysis of Clay Shaw.

The more I learn about the guy the more he irritates me.

And here he is, reportedly, working for CBS in 1967, getting someone that hasn't yet been identified, to pose in the backyard four years to the day - week - Marina is said to have taken the photos of Oswald with the murder weapons and commie mags.

While I haven't confirmed that Schiller took this particular back yard photo yet, or was working for CBS at the time, CBS was most certainly working on a special report on the assassination, and John J. McCloy and the photo evidence had a lot to do with it.

ARRB MD 17 – CBS – Memorandum from Les Midgley to John J. McCloy (1/11/67) pg

http://www.maryferrell.org/mffweb/archive/...absPageId=66496

Dear Mr. McCloy:

Thanks very much for letting me see this proof. I agree that it is a very well reasoned and excellent summary of the critics and their cases. Maybe Professor Goodhart would be a good man to participate in our project. We will talk to him as well as Lord Devlin.

As we get into the pathology side of the case it seems more important than ever for us to get a statement – if possible – from Humes, Boswell and Finck that examination of the x-rays and color pictures does not change their findings and we certainly would appreciate your assistance in obtaining some. All three have absolutely refused to be interviewed and Dr. Humes would not even see one of our producers in person, preferring to talk on the telephone. (I have been told, by a man who is a personal friend of Dr. Humes, that he says one of the x-rays shows a wire left in the bullet path through the neck. If this is indeed true, publication of same would resolve forever the discussion about back verses neck wound and generally settle the dust about the autopsy.)

Thanks again for your interest,

Leslie Midgley
