Summary

Summary

Abraham Zapruder was a Texas dress manufacturer who brought along his home movie camera when he stopped to watch the passing motorcade during President John F. Kennedy's visit to Dallas on November 22, 1963. To his shock, Zapruder captured the assassination of the president on film. This video includes the horrifying 26-second sequence of Kennedy's death in fully restored and digitally enhanced form, allowing a fresh and uncompromised look at the factual record of one of the most tragic and controversial moments in American history. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
