New Kennedy film

The just-released film of Kennedy driving towards Dealey Plaza pulled out of the attic of someone called George Jeffries is here. It's in lovely colour and there are some marvellous shots of the people waiting along the pavement - the atmosphere is relaxed; it's time off and there are smiles everywhere. Notice how gently the policemen moves pedestrians off the road. One of them, a young woman, turns to a man, who says something, and she laughs a sort of you-cheeky-thing laugh. Later on, there's a shot of a man who looks just like Lee Harvey Oswald, standing in the crowd gazing at nothing. Might there have been a conspiracy?
