Editorial Reviews

More than 40 years have passed since the assassination of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963. The Murder of JFK: A Revisionist History takes a comprehensive examination into the theories behind the assassination itself. It also explains the tragedy within the context of the existing U.S. political and cultural climate, and the global context of the Cold War.

The Murder of JFK: A Revisionist History includes:

  • The first digital rendering of the Zapruder film, mastered from the original.
  • The only known color footage of Lee Harvey Oswald.
  • Cuban source material on the Bay of Pigs and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
  • First-time use of audio material from Robert F. Kennedy¹s oral history.
  • Interviews with Arthur Schlesinger, John Frankenheimer, Jack Anderson and Sam Halpern.
  • A link between the film Psycho and the FBI’s report on Oswald.
  • Newly discovered footage from local television archives and foreign news sources, including Lyndon B. Johnson’s thoughts concerning a conspiracy.
  • Winner of the 1999 IDA/ABCNews VideoSource Award for the Best Use of News Footage in a Documentary.

    First of all, let me just say that I am very qualified to give a review of any film concerning the JFK assassination. I am currently a professor of psychology at Texas A&M International University with an educational background in sociology and political science. I began my research on the Kennedy assassination more than 8 years ago as an honors student in a Texas History class. Since then, I have returned to the subject on and off and have given presentations on the subject as a graduate student and more recently as a professor. In the process of doing my research, I came across Noel Twyman's book Bloody Treason. At first I was turned off by the dramatic title (which I later discovered was a line from Shakespeare's Ceasar), but once I read the book (over 800 pages) I realized it was very objective and scholarly, and the approach of the author was that of a prosecuting attorney making his case before a court of sceptics. I admired the depth of this man's research and was very surpised that his work did not receive the respect or attention it most certainly deserved. Either way, I later watched the Final Chapter episodes of the Men Who Killed Kennedy on the History Channel, and while I had some minor objections to the simplicity of its conclusions regarding the Texas connection, I feel that Nigel Turner nonetheless deserves praise for his great contribution to this line of historical research. Having reached my own conclusions, I had put the subject of the Kennedy assassination to rest for a while. Then I came across The Murder of JFK: A Revisionist History on DVD while perusing through some newly released DVDs. I have to say that I wasn't eager to spend another $18 on a JFK assassination DVD that I knew next to nothing about. But I finally decided to take a chance and make the purchase.Read more ›

    As the leading civilian authority on the U.S. Secret Service (and President Kennedy's interaction with the agency), I was much interested in this DVD by Matthew White. Quite frankly, I didn't expect much, but the technical brilliance of the program---and the archival footage contained herein---make this a worthwhile purchase. Get this. vince palamara

    Probably the most interesting documentary on the events preceding and following the JFK assassination I've ever seen. Full of terrific news footage that makes the time period come alive, including a strange news clip of Jack Ruby's lawyer telling newscameras that being in Dallas makes him want to vomit! This documentary tends to lean towards conspiracy, careful to never vocally express that viewpoint as THE MEN WHO KILLED KENNEDY did. It offers a lot to think about without taking a firm stance, which I appreciated.

    Anyway, there's much to process here. If you've got any interest in the case, in the Kennedys, in Castro or the Cold War, you'll enjoy this DVD.

    Though this reexamination of the variety of conspiracy theories contradicting the idea that Lee Harvey Oswald was solely responsible for the tragedy in Dallas is dry and academic in places, there's enough archival footage to get any history buff excited. There's not only a digitally remastered version of the still-gruesome Zapruder film, but also a really fine setting of the times, describing the powers of the Mafia, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Cuba, the USSR and the right-wing in America, separately and together motivated to remove the young, popular president. Historian Arthur Schlesinger and writer Jack Anderson provide interesting anecdotes and comments, and, while no specific theory is completely embraced, the DVD remains a fascinating look at a painful and troubling part of our history.

    The rich and powerful still own each and every one of us. Look at what happened to the only President to stand up to them.
    They blew his head apart, while emory roberts (head of our president's secret service detail for that day) set him up and sat back and watched it happen. I wonder how much it costs to buy an agent. roberts even called back a agent that was going to help, after our president was hit, by the 2nd bullet. The first one missed.
    johnson knew too, look at the smile on his face, in the motorcade. He knew exactly what was going to happen. He and his oil buddies in Texas got together, (The BU#@ Family) to figure it out.
    THEY WANTED THEIR WAR IN FING VIETNAM. Johnsons carreer was over, and he wanted to be President, (No matter the cost)That's why Johnson was covered and pushed down by Rufus Youngblood, (a honest agent) after he "saw some commotion in the President's car". He leaped out of the front seat, and covered johnson. After he had johnson covered and safe, he heard the final two shots. It's all in his report. How did he leap over the back, of johnsons car while the other agent's behind, and in Kennedy's car did nothing.
    Then about the agents in the front seat of the presidential car, The president, said quite clearly "My God, I'm hit" before he passed out. Then the driver practically stops, and looks back, like he is waiting......... "Oh there it is, the kill shot. Punch it." Almost like he was expecting it. They LET our President get assassinated! Then emory roberts radios back to johnsons car "They got him. They got him." (interesting choice of words).Watch this and learn a little, about how we lost our country.
    John Kennedy was an incredibly brave soul, so was Bobby.
