Rifle tracking JFK
Film expert M.K. Davis exposes a man wearing a policeman's cap tracking JFK's limo with a rifle while hiding behind the stone pergola.
This blown-up and slow-mo film work is taken from the Oliver Nix film. Be sure to visit our friend Gayle Nix Jackson at her webpage for more about this piece of history.
Gen. Walker has Oswald filmed
We know professional reactionary General Edwin Walker was part of the conspiracy to kill JFK because Walker knows or programs Lee Harvey Oswald's movements in advance.
This film is monumentally important but is difficult to apreciate without some background. The film starts in Dallas at Gen. Walker's home and later moves to New Orleans, where the filmmaker captures the critical spectacle of Oswald in a police scuffle with Walker's pal Carlos Bringuier.
The film of the interior of Gen. Walker's home at the beginning of the film + the knowledge Oswald would be causing a scene on Canal St. shows that Gen. Walker is either stalking or directing Oswald.

Rare full frame of Mark Bell film
Gunmen close up
After JFK's limo makes the slow and difficult turn onto Elm St., a muzzle flash (or two) appears from the second floor window where the gunmen are seen above in the Bell film.
This is from the Hughes film and is a few seconds after the Bell film frame above.
Lesser dignitaries and press cars are still in the motorcade and have not yet turned onto Elm St.
