Four reels of film from the events of November 22, 1963, including a second-generation Zapruder film
Collection of four reels of film first, a second-generation true copy of the historic Abraham Zapruder film of the assassination of John F. Kennedy, originally obtained directly from New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison, and made for use in the trial of Clay Shaw. Color 8mm film is housed in its original box, and signed on the outside by long-time Kennedy researcher, J. Gary Shaw, who obtained the film directly from Garrison. Accompanied by a notarized letter of provenance from Bob Cochran, which states, in part: “I attest to the authenticity of this copy of the Zapruder film came directly from Jim Garrison and was copied by him from the true original…I received three of these films…This film is signed by Gary Shaw who obtained it directly from Jim Garrison,” and also by a notarized letter from Chris Gallop relaying the sale of the film to Cochran. Next, a second-generation copy of the black-and-white film by Orville Nix, containing the final six seconds of the assassination, as well as a slow-motion replay. Third, a second-generation copy of a portion of the Orville Nix color 8 mm film containing the final shot which struck Kennedy and the crowd reaction during the immediate aftermath. Finally, a second-generation copy of the color Super 8 mm Marie Muchmore film showing Kennedy’s limousine entering Dealey Plaza, with a brief image of the final shot fired at the motorcade, and a brief shot of the limousine racing away towards Parkland Hospital. One of the Nix films is also accompanied by a notarized certificate of authenticity from Cochran. An incredibly rare offering including one of the most widely viewed and studied pieces of film in American history, as well as seldom-seen other vantage points from the tragic day in Dallas.
