New Film Surfaces of JFK, Jackie in Dallas
RENEE MONTAGNE, host:
Good morning. I'm Renee Montagne.
Just 90 seconds before John F. Kennedy was assassinated, an amateur photographer captured a glimpse of the president and his wife. Then he stored the film for more than 40 years before donating it to the Sixth Floor Museum in Dallas, which is dedicated to the memory of JFK. A curator calls the silent color footage the clearest, best film of Jackie in the motorcade. It was unveiled on President's Day. It's now on the museum's Web site.
It's MORNING EDITION.
