Half Century Since JFK Assassination Brings New Kennedy Films

18 Sep

November 22, 2013 commemorates 50 years since United States President John Fitzgerald Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas, Texas. As we approach the half century mark of this world-changing event, some remarkable films are scheduled for 2013 release.

November 22, 1963

11-22-1963: The President and Mrs. Kennedy Arrive In Dallas

The forthcoming contribution of Academy Award-winning filmmaker Oliver Stone is called “JFK II” by some and the James Bond-esque title “Secrets Never Keep” by others.  Mr. Stone is quoted by the Seattle PI as saying “I will be delving into the analysis of the many convoluted conspiracy theories that have captivated a nation and held it hostage for almost 50 years. I hope to shed some light on what has become a dark shadow on the Nation’s soul.”

Another anticipated JFK film is based on the bestselling book The Kennedy Detail by Lisa McCubbin and former Secret Service agent Gerald Blaine.  It tells the tale of JFK’s presidency from the perspective of the men who guarded his life during his time in office, including on November 22, 1963. Both films are expected to be released by November, 2013.

One more expected film about President Kennedy is reportedly being produced by famous actor Tom Hanks.  With the working title Parkland, speculation has it set entirely in Dallas, the site of President Kennedy’s murder. Movie insiders say the film will document moments leading up to President Kennedy’s assassination and focus on Abraham Zapruder, who filmed the most famous images from Dealey Plaza.

Events of November 22, 1963 continue to draw significant public attention, underscoring the lasting effect of President Kennedy’s legacy and his tragic death.

    We now know that the US CIA Castro Assassination team recalled by JFK’s order to stand-down the Cuban Brigade was then turned on the Pres. by the CIA as payback this edict and for JFK threat to break agency “into 1000 pieces” after Bay of Pigs debacle.

    Please don’t let Warren Commission fiction hood-wink the public.
