JFK Assassination Film: Proof of Tampering?

Recommended Posts

Found this article on WhoWhatWhy today.  FWIW I don't believe the Zapruder film was tampered with, but the demonstration that Jackie seems farther back on the trunk of the car in the Nix film than the Zapruder film is interesting.  I don't really know what to make of it -- could just be an optical illusion.

Hi Brian,

After reading the article and making my best guess as to the distance between Jackie’s right hand and the limo's left side handhold in the two films, I agree, so far, with James Norwood’s assessment:

“In the Zapruder film of the assassination, Jackie goes only just beyond the middle of the trunk before retreating. In the Nix film, Jackie goes noticeably further out on the trunk.”

Like you said, it “could be an optical illusion”, but it would be interesting to see what somebody like Andrej Stancak could do with the two perspectives.
