Larry,

 

Thanks. That was pretty cool.

If I'm reading that right, a closed fist pumped up and down is the signal for "hurry up". Maybe someone with better photography skills than I have could put together a short gif focusing on the DCM's right hand.

That was my read too Steve, I would be interested if someone could do that with a gif as I can't see it any better than you described even though I've looked at it many times. As I said earlier though, tactically though, either or both those guys could be [postioned there simply to gain the attention of the driver for a moment or to give a visual signal that no abort had been called for on Elm. Pure speculation but consistent with  the other points about the pick up, ambulance etc.

Yes, it does look like a wave. An open hand one.

You'd think that some extended family of the DC man ( some one somewhere ) would have been made aware of their relative's presence in this famous video after 50 years.

I am sure that at this man's age he must have been known or connected to someone.

His general build, posture and a hat type not that common and that he probably wore on a regular basis would make him instantly recognizable.

This is great work but I recall in a photo at one point he had his fist closed.  But the question is what was unser his jacket undet his right arm?  It bulges out when he sits down.  Could he have fired anything?

Cory made me think a bit on this one, is there any film footage from further up the street that shows him with his arm in motion or raised....in reality any real signal would be made well before the limo is right beside him.  Just curious.

Larry,

 

In 2014, Richard Douglas posted a series of photos of the Dark Complected Man in the jfkassassinationforum

here:

http://www.jfkassassinationforum.com/index.php?PHPSESSID=da10693a75f6fceb0ce372badd010bff&topic=11687.0

But somebody hacked that forum, and those pictures aren't available anymore.

There is this site:

https://www.google.com/search?q=%22Dark+Complected+Man%22&client=firefox-b-1-ab&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwjZ46CbqZreAhUGo4MKHdNRC_IQsAR6BAgAEAE&biw=1358&bih=745#imgrc=4rVDEOFecmUznM:

which contains this photo:

The picture on the top left looks like his arm is not raised at all. (I think this is the photo that is often famously used to show the Black Dog Man in the background).
