JFK's Death In The Movies - CoverUps.com

Surprisingly, considering the impact that John F. Kennedy's murder had, both in America as well as the world at large, few movies and television shows have been produced concerning the death of JFK. They include:

"Executive Action" (1973)

Directed by David Miller, the film starred Burt Lancaster, Robert Ryan, Will Geer, John Anderson, Ed Lauter, Dick Miller.

The film proposes that multiple shooters, in the hire of a conservative wealthy American, killed President Kennedy because his plans and policies were not in accordance with the Conservative agenda.

While the film (partially financed by Lancaster) was not very effectively made, AND bombed at the box office, Lancaster and Warner Brothers deserve credit for grappling with a difficult subject that other producers film studios had avoided up to that point, and continued to primarily avoid up till "JFK" was released in 1991.




Donald Sutherland tells Kevin Costner's character some shocking facts and unanswered questions.

"JFK" (1991)

Directed by Oliver Stone, the film starred Kevin Costner, Sissy Spacek, Kevin Bacon, Tommy Lee Jones, Gary Oldman, Joe Pesci, Donald Sutherland, John Candy, Jack Lemmon, Walter Matthau, Ed Asner, and Sally Kirkland.

With Costner as New Orleans D.A. Jim Garrison, "JFK" presented a persuasive conspiracy theory involving the government, organized crime figures, and others.

A high point of the movie, rather late in the movie, is Costner/Garrison's convincing debunking, in a courtroom, of the Warren Commission's famous "Magic Bullet", which caused seven wounds in Kennedy and Connally, doing zig-zags and U-turns before ending up, in perfect condition, on a stretcher neither the President or Connally was ever on.
