People tried to
figure this out for three decades. Instead of clearing up the mystery,
Zapruder’s film just made things more confusing.
In the 1990s,
researchers started to realize that there was a fourth possible explanation.
Zapruder’s film might also be a part of the lies and cover-up that agencies of
the U.S. Government had weaved around the JFK assassination!
The Zapruder film was scientifically examined. It was found that,
while most of it looks completely
genuine, some of the images are impossible. They violate the laws of physics.

is a very good forgery. It is almost perfect. Some mistakes took almost 40
years to find.
It was scientifically proven that Zapruder’s film could not be just changed a little bit. For any of it to be altered in this way, the whole
film must be created. The whole film is a fake!
A movie film is
just a strip of little photos (“frames”). The fake film was made by cutting and
pasting real photos and film frames together to make new frames.
Because the Zapruder
film is only 27 seconds long, less than 500 photos needed to be made. The
forgers had at least several months to create them. Most were not published for a year after the assassination. This would require sophisticated photographic work, but well within the technological capabilities of 1963 and 1964. People had been creating high quality
fake photos since the 1850s!
But what about
the people who watched Zapruder’s film in the days after the assassination?
believe that a real film of the
assassination was quickly altered on the evening of the assassination, using
machines that could create Hollywood-style special effects (like Mary Poppins, created in 1964). Since
the film was not shown on television, no one knows exactly what these people
saw. But we do know that they described a film that is different to the film published in November 1964 as the “Zapruder
