  1. Betzner Reflections It is time to look at a photo rather than a document. This Betzner photo came up in reading through and watching films from other threads currently at the Ed Forum. I found this photo strange and not believable. Why? It comes down to what is reflected on the side of the presidential limousine. The reflections there do not fit the environment in which the p. limo is located. This photo was taken by Hugh Betzner on Houston Street as the presidential limousine passed the entrance to the Court House/Court Records Building’s parking structure. This is a crop of that picture that may show the reflections better. We see two vehicles, one of which is turning. Then to the right-hand side is something unidentifiable. Below that is a section that may show (at best guess) a line of people. The law of reflections tells us what ought to be there: The law of reflection: Objects can be seen by the light they emit, or, more often, by the light they reflect. Reflected light obeys the law of reflection, that the angle of reflection equals the angle of incidence. The angle of reflection points back to the photographer. What is being reflected is what is being seen from the angle of incidence or incident ray. They are equal angles. Hugh Betzner was standing on the west side of Houston Street almost directly across from the p. limo when this photo was taken. Here is his approximate location when the photo was taken from the Elsie Dorman film. In this film frame he is not quite level with the p. limo, but he may be aiming his camera here and takes the shot when the limo is directly in front of him. Or, not. For our purposes it doesn’t matter whether he shot the photo here or a brief part of a second later. There was a montage made of the Dorman film and this crop is from the earlier scenes from that film. At 18 ft per second (based on Zapruder speeds) the p. limo is less than a second further north on Houston Street after the Betzner photo. We see vehicles turning from the left-hand unto Houston Street. We do not see vehicles turning unto Houston from the right hand side. The reflection scene on the side of the p. limo does not match the scene as seen in the Dorman film. In the reflection on the side of the p. limo we seen vehicles and something else that is not a crowd of people. What we should see there is the crowd of people standing near Betzner on the west side of Houston Street by the reflecting pool and the motorcycle policemen to the side or rear of the p. limo and not cars in the distance and some other things unidentifiable. This is what should be reflected. And, now for the part that gets everyone upset. When you consider this alteration of the p. limo in Betzner with the alterations of the p. limo in Altgens 5, and several witness statements about activities on Main Street, at the intersection of Houston and Main, and on Houston Street the notion that something happened on Houston Street is strengthened. This is an entirely different story which is not accepted by just about everyone.
  2. Elsie Dorman was a 57 years old employee employed in a clerical position at the Scott-Foresman Co. in the TSBD on the day of the assassination. Her FBI statement of 11-24-63 stated she was in the 4th floor offices of Scott-Forseman, seated on the floor with the windows open filming the motorcade, when it first appeared on Houston Street. In her March 20, 1964 statement for the WC she said she was using her husband’s camera and was not too familiar with its operation. This has led some to state she was a horrible photographer and was the worst photographer that day. That is simply not true. What was later done by the government to her film made her such a poor bumbling photographer. Nothing she did at all produced the extremely altered mess called the Dorman Film. She is not responsible for the altered, black painted, and blackened out imagery in the film. It is so all pervasive that nothing of importance can be seen in the film on Houston Street. When matched with the alterations of Altgens 5, this makes a mysterious, suspicious situation which needs more investigation. One can not compare the Zapruder film to the Dorman film. The imagery is not the same. There are more people in Dorman on the SW corner of the Houston and Elm Street intersection than in the Zapruder film. There are missing people in the Zapruder film when compared to Dorman. For instance, Phil Willis is not seen at all. Another, is in the Zapruder film you do not see Pierce Allman and Terry Ford photographing the motorcade. But, you do in the Dorman film. The sequence of Linda and Rosemary Willis differs in the two films. About the only thing I see that rings true are the frames that show Tina Turner and her family. I have worked on the Dorman film many times. And, each time I do I come away with the impression that the Dorman film was half way altered. In other words, the job of altering the film was abandoned and not completed. Throughout the film people are blacked out with black paint and their image becomes unidentifiable. This is particularly true in the frames involving Houston Street. My thought is that there were no images available to replace with overlay images the blackened out images in the film. The film was filmed from the 4th floor of the TSBD and there could have been perspective and angle problems in matching up images from elsewhere. So, they just left the blackened out images knowing no one would ever be able to seen what had really happened. Then get your shills to blame Elsie as the worst photographer ever. This is one of the problems I have worked on for some time. Why were so many of the films that show the intersection of Main and Houston, plus scenes on Houston Street, altered. Why is there a Zapruder gap? Why do 8 assassination films have skipped frames when the presidential limousine passes the Court Records Building? Do you ever wonder what the odds are that that would occur naturally? What is being covered up? I’ve prepared a gif that discusses some of the problems with the film. Each frame lasts 7 seconds which I think is enough time to read the questions.
  3. Separate Realities: A view from the Lady in the High Castle We only have two views of the South West corner of Elm Street and Houston Street. These views are from the Zapruder film and the Elsie Dorman film. Isn’t that strange? Isn’t that very, very strange. Only Elsie Dorman in the TSBD was filming? No one in front of the TSBD or in Mannequin Row was taking pictures? No one was taking photos further down Elm St. towards the freeway signs? No one was taking photos in the crosswalk on North Houston? No one was taking pictures in the crosswalk of East Elm St.? No one was taking pictures on East Houston St. Strange indeed! By viewing these two films we should be able to establish how many people were on the SW corner of Elm and Houston. The two films should match. They don’t. By viewing these films frame by frame, we come up with a different number of people there at the same time in the two films. The discrepancy between counting people there in the two films is too large. The Elsie Dorman film has approximately ten more people there as the Zapruder film does. One film shows people that are not present in the other. This is a large discrepancy! Which one is a fake? The Zapruder film has two beginnings. The beginning of the Zapruder film starts with the Z frame 1 with 3 motorcycle policemen at the beginning of the presidential motorcade making the turn onto Elm Street. The film misses the Pilot Car and the Advance Car. This is all that is shown of the parade or motorcade. This lasts for 132 Z frames and is about 7 seconds in length. The second beginning starts at Z frame 133. The presidential limousine appears magically on Elm Street in this frame. We have missed the lead car, and 5 motorcycle policemen. How much time has passed is unknown. Perhaps, as much as 20 or more seconds have passed. Given the time of the third wave (3 motorcycle policemen) of the motorcade to pass is 7 seconds then we can guess at how long it has taken the other waves of the motorcade to pass. This is at least 21 seconds or longer. The time of Elsie Dorman film on the SW corner of Elm and Houston is unknown. The entire film is about 1minute and 25 seconds in length. It begins as the presidential limousine is turning onto Houston Street from Main Street. Elsie Dorman said she stopped filming when the President and the limousine turned unto Elm Street. This would be as the 5 lead motorcycles were turning onto Elm Street or just shortly afterward as the presidential limousine turned onto Elm Street. One can get a notion of this in the following panorama. This panorama is not correct. There may be missing frames and the frames are assembled out of sequence here. People are covered with black paint blotches. The lead car is missing and out of sight. Does this indicate somebody knows something? Check out the distance between the Johnson vehicle and the Secret Service vehicle? Did someone know something? 4 out of 5 motorcycle policemen are missing. Data is missing from this panorama that highlights major differences between Elsie Dorman and Zapruder. Shooting from the 4th floor should give one a wider view of events below. There is also a gap in the film similar to Zapruder but, not at the same place. This gap is in front of the Court Records Building. This is similar to many other assassination films. Howard Brennan on the retaining wall and a man in bid overalls and what appears to be a railroad hat are used as markers because they are visible in Elsie Dorman and before and after the gap in the Zapruder film. I call this man the Railroad Man because of his clothing. If you count west of the red line between Howard Brennan and the Railroad Man you will find about 16 people there in this panorama. Someone knew of the problem of the difference in the number of people in the two films. This is an attempt to bring Elsie Dorman in tune with Zapruder. The SW corner after Z frame 133 has 16 people countable in the Zapruder film. This panorama is a clever attempt to hide major differences between the Dorman and Zapruder films. This will be made clearer as we move along in the discussion. Just as an aside, this panorama is just a second or so before the assassination ambush of President Kennedy begins. You will not find anywhere a visual record of the presidential limousine passing the Court Records Building.
