In "26 Seconds," Alexandra Zapruder complains her family had to put up with a lot due to her Grandfather's assassination film. She should be so lucky that her last name wasn't Nix! After all, the Zapruder family received millions for their film, while the Nix family received nothing but misery & mistreatment by both the gov't & the media. Abraham Zapruder was a successful businessman who was treated courteously concerning his film; Orville Nix was a poor, uneducated laborer who believed in - & was taken advantage of - by the US gov't.
Reading about how Mr Nix was used, abused, lied to, etc, by those he trusted really made me angry. I could feel his granddaughter's anguish throughout the pages of this book. Ms Nix-Jackson was similarly mistreated & lied to when she embarked on her search for the original film from her grandfather's camera. I'm certain this is due to the fact that the "something" on the Grassy Knoll that showed up in Mr Nix's film really is something important - something the gov't wants to continue covering up through lies & intimidation.
At last we have a Kennedy assassination book written by a relative of a first person witness that is well written, thought-provoking, and intelligent.
Gayle Nix Jackson, the granddaughter of Orville Nix, weaves a compelling tale of what happened to her grandfather before, during and after he photographed the assassination from the opposite side of Abraham Zapruder’s position. Additionally we have the extraordinary mystery of what happened to this now missing film as it wound its way through time?
With the advent of better technology one can only wonder what the original film contains in the shadows. Copies show it reveals the area of the purported position of several shooter locations behind the picket fence. Since the original images could resolve issues related to conspiracy it remains a crucial piece of lost history. And this story of the man and his vanished film is well worth reading.
government. It has never been important to know the names of the men who pulled the triggers as much as those whose were complicit in covering up them doing so.
