The dramatic high point of the conference was the showing of a “bootleg” copy of what is known as “the Zapruder film.” This is an amateur movie made by Abraham Zapruder, a Dallas dressmaker, which is the only known pictorial record of the moment Mr. Kennedy was shot. The film was purchased by Time Inc. and has never been officially released.

In the film, President Kennedy is seen slumping forward in the back seat of the convertible, his hands moving upward toward his neck.

His wife, Jacqueline, is seen moving across Gov. John B. Connally of Texas, who is sitting slightly forward, reaching for the President [sic].

Suddenly, the President’s head and the upper part of his body are snapped violently backward. Blood gushes about his face.

This moment of the film was marked by groans and gasps from the audience packed into an auditorium at Boston University, the conference site.
