Never-before-seen video of Kennedy on public display
New York: For the first time, a colour film shot by a 15-year-old student providing glimpses of former US President John F Kennedy and his wife arriving in Dallas on the day he was assassinated is on display at a museum in Dallas.
The film, shot by William Ward Warren, provides a rare, high-quality colour close-up of John and Jackie Kennedy as they arrived in Dallas. The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey
Plaza put the film on display for public viewing on Presidents Day.
Gary Mack, curator at The Sixth Floor Museum calls it "the best home movie known to exist of the Kennedy arrival in Dallas on November 22, 1963" that he has ever seen.
On November 22, 1963, local television stations were broadcasting live coverage of the Kennedy arrival at Dallas Love Field airport.
At that time, media outlets nationwide were primarily using only black and white video and movie cameras.
Except for one White House photographer, whose brief film remained unreleased for years, the only colour images of President Kennedy in Dallas were made by amateurs filming their personal views of the First Family, the museum said.
The vast majority have never been seen by the public, including amateur film shot by Warren of Dallas.
