Four Days in November


Probably the first major documentary about the Kennedy assassination, made well before the massive conspiracy industry had really gotten off the ground. It recounts the events leading up to the killing, showing a great deal of footage I had never seen before. There is no chatter about the grassy knoll, Castro, the Mafia and such, which is just as well. I concluded long ago that it’s easiest—and almost certainly correct—to accept the single shooter theory, and accept that Oswald was the shooter. I was surprised to find that there were still some things I hadn’t known about that dark day, and the events following, particularly the incredible amount of planning and rehearsal for the funeral itself.
