The $16 million film of the JFK assassination that carried a curse

Recommended Posts

When I click on the link, a new browser opens with the story, and the page keeps refreshing every 3-4 seconds. I can't read it. ?

Roger, don't bother reading it.  It's just a fluff piece on Z's daughter's book. Here's a review of it BTW:

I would not have posted the article if I thought a member would recommend to other members to not bother reading it.

So far there have been 187 views of the article by forum members, which apparently means something.

Thanks for the articles you post, Douglas.  It is perhaps hard to summon much sympathy for the Zapruders.  A lot of people suffered because of JFK's death; few profited directly.

Doug - it was not my intention to make it sound as if I don't want you to post things.  What I meant was that story was simply a fluff piece for her to sell her book, which is not an entirely honest analysis of the film. Yes, I'm sure her family had an interesting journey with the film but it doesn't tell the whole story about what's IN the film.

You can find a multi-part critique of the book on Jim DiEugenio's website. That's what I mean about not bothering to read the article.

We have heard the "Walton Whine" many times. He whines that no one pays any attention to his topics. He has basically given-up posting topics, only having posted one this year, and has instead taken to mulling around like a outcast kid on a playground, kicking around and ridiculing other kids activities because no-on wants to play with him.

Here's the critique of Zaprurder's book. And on that page in the lede, it pretty much says it all about how much you'll actually learn from it. In other words, not much...

The first in a two-part installment in which Jeff Carter reviews a book that "reveals some new – albeit not earth-shattering – information", but is also "imbued with a certain partisanship, not limited to family interests, which dulls the author’s critical thinking in some key areas.

It is I who owe you an apology. I am sorry for my hasty and brusque response.
