Looking for a NEWSWEEK political cartoon on Oliver Stone's "JFK" film

Hello,

I don't know the date of this issue. The caption said, "Gun it, Stone's trying to open the trunk."

The image is of Clint Hill trying to reach the limo after JFK has been hit in the head. The caption is said by Kellerman to Greer in this cartoon. The trunk of the presidential limo I think had a caption like that's where all the JFK files were. If anyone has a scan of that I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Joe,

Recently, I needed to get something from Newsweek--circa 1975--and found it impossible "on-line." However, and fyi, the UCLA Library has the hardbound volumes of Newsweek, so if you determine the date, I can easily get it the next time I'm on campus. (And I go there often to swim laps, and to do certain other research at the main library, pertinent to LHO). Let me know. DSL

P.S. The date ought to be between June 1991 and December 1991, when JFK was released.

David,

It's before June 26 of 1992.

Unfortunately, no. I have this issue and checked it last night.

BTW, my Mom's Mom was a Hogan.

Joe

Joe, there's a slim possibly I may have that issue. If you get stuck, let me know. It would be somewhat time consuming to try and locate

I'd appreciate it if you could find the issue with this political cartoon.

Sorry folks, it's not in Newsweek. I went to the New York State Library today and went through Newsweek for 1991 and 1992.

So, it may be in TIME, or more likely in a newspaper, perhaps The Washington Post.

Again, the caption said, "Gun it, Stone's trying to open the trunk." The image is of Clint Hill trying to reach the limo, as seen in the Zapruder film, after JFK has been hit in the head. The caption is said by Kellerman to Greer in this cartoon. The trunk of the presidential limo I think had a caption like that's where all the JFK files were. I think on the back of their suit jackets Greer and Kellerman had FBI and CIA. I don't recall which had which. This appeared prior to June 26 of 1992. So, somewhere between Jan of 1991 and June 26, 1992.
