5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous...even with warts and all. Essential! April 15, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Although (as with Mark Lane's great book with a similar name) certainly NOT "the last word" on the JFK assassination, this over 2-and-a-half hour, two-part DVD is an essential, fabulous and informative production, even with some warts and all included. The first part of the DVD is a 1992 production that was once only available on VHS (and was long out of stock). Although a few items in this 90-minute documentary are debatable and/ or discredited, the LARGE majority of this presentation is a very well done and essential must-have for any student of the JFK assassination, in general, and the Jim Garrison case, in particular (not to nitpick with the minor "problems" with this part of the documentary, which I fondly recall from over 20 years ago in its tape-only rendition: the production values are excellent- rare photos, videos, films and eyewitness commentary galore). Jim Garrison, Lou Ivon, Bill Alford, F. Irvin Dymond, Judge Haggerty, Mark Lane, Harold Weisberg, Steve Jaffe, and a host of others grace this part...bravo!

The second part of this DVD is the 1/31/14 webcast panel discussion with authors Joan Mellen, Jim Marrs, and Dick Russell, narrated by John Barbour, the producer and narrator of the 1992 documentary. While excellent and thought provoking, the one hour given to this panel could have (and should have) been much longer; I wanted more, more, more! Inevitably, that is WHY there never will be a final word on the assassination- time constraints and interruptions are ever present (as an aside, someone needs to write the mother of all conspiracy books and outdo Bugliosi and the Warren Commission via a nuts-and-bolts, everything-AND-the-kitchen-sink look at the case: ALL the evidence of conspiracy in unabbreviated form, etc., but I digress)..

In summation, this is a very fine production that John Barbour and company should feel mighty proud of, fully deserving a five star rating. Get this asap! What are you waiting for?
