A JFK assassination video held under wraps for 50 years that purports to show a second gunman on the “grassy knoll” is being shopped to news media by a Texas real estate mogul-turned-Hollywood producer.
TheWrap.com broke the story Friday, reporting that Stephen Bowen, a highly successful real-estate entrepreneur in Texas has acquired the never-before-screened JFK assassination video and is shopping it.
Bowen is now a principal in Hollywood-based Waterstone Entertainment, an independent motion picture financing and production company.
According to TheWrap.com, Bowen acquired the video from a local Houston television news producer who held it secretly for more than 40 years.
While TheWrap.com admitted its staff had not viewed the video, the published report quoted two unnamed individuals who have described portions of it as a challenge to the Warren Commission’s conclusion that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin.
“You can see a guy in the bushes with a gun,” one of the unnamed sources told TheWrap.com. “It looks like real footage, though I am not an expert.”
TheWrap.com further reported Jay Cohen of the Gersh agency in Los Angeles is in the process of arranging private screenings of the video this week for news media and other parties interested in purchasing the film, including CNN, Fox News and Reuters.
WND is in the process of contacting Cohen to see if it can screen the film and determine its importance and authenticity before making a bid for the rights.
In a separate story, Robert F. Kennedy Jr. is on the record saying his late father, Sen. Robert F. Kennedy, believed the Warren Commission was “a shoddy piece of craftsmanship.”
He said his father had concluded that JFK was assassinated by a conspiracy.
“The evidence at this point I think is very, very convincing that it was not a lone gunman,” Robert F. Kennedy Jr., told CBS News in January.
He explained his father, the U.S. attorney general at the time of JFK’s death, felt “some sense of guilt because he thought there might have been a link between his very aggressive efforts against organized crime.”
RFK Jr. said his father publicly supported the Warren Commission, “but privately he was dismissive of it.”
