A conspiracy is rarely, if ever, proved by positive testimony. When a crime of high magnitude is about to be perpetrated by a combination of individuals, they do not act openly, but covertly and secretly. The purpose formed is known only to those who enter into it. Unless one of the original conspirators betrays his companions and gives evidence against them, their guilt can be proved only by circumstantial evidence...and circumstances can not lie. Special Judge Advocate John A. Bingham quoted in The Trial of the Conspirators, Washington, 1865.
Note: no home movie cameras of that era produced sound, only video movie pictures on film.
Note: the limo would have the hardtop in place plus the rain would make low quality pictures at best.
I didn't have my camera. My secretary, Lillian Rodgers asked me why I didn't have it. I told her I wouldn't have a chance even to see the President. Somehow she urged me. I went home and got my camera. At first, I thought I might take pictures from the window. My building is right next to the building where the alleged assassin was. It's just across 501 Elm St. Instead, I figured - I may go down and get better pictures. So, my receptionist, Marilyn Sitzman and I walked down.
Note: If the rain had continued during the beginning of the parade from Love Field, the hardtop would not have been removed from the Lincoln limousine. This would have aborted the assassination attempt. The weather had started clearing west to east while the entourage attended a breakfast at the Hotel Texas in Fort Worth. The hardtop was taken off in Fort Worth so the crowd could have a better view. However, in Fort Worth, the Secret Service secured the open vehicle by riding on the sides, something not done in Dallas.
At around mid-noon, I chose to perch on a four feet high concrete abutment at the west end of the Bryan Colonnade's steps in Dealey Plaza, next to the Grassy Knoll. I asked Marilyn Sitzman to climb up behind me and steady me as I filmed due to the possibility of vertigo. My camera was fully-wound and captured the events at a steady 18.3 frames-per-second.
Note: this last statement above sounds fishy. How would Harry know Zapruder had a camera? Why didn’t the Secret Service confiscate the film immediately?
Note: listen to how fishy this last statement above sounds. I would think he would finish the interview at the least.
Note: Nixon was in Dallas on a Pepsi convention. This is why JFK had to book the Trade Mart for a luncheon and have the parade route changed from Main St to an Elm St jog at the last moment. The Dallas Times Hearld printed the change Thursday afternoon.
Note: The third DVD of 'The Men Who Killed Kennedy' the third episode on this DVD 'The Guilty Men' has the interview of Maeleine Brown. This third DVD was pulled from airing by the History Channel and will not be circulated by them as part of the agreed settlement with the Gerald Ford and LBJ estate legal staff. The History Channel had to also apologize on the air to all its patrons for airing such a blantantly slanderous piece of filth.
