JFK Assassination: Zapruder Film Frame By Frame



Zapruder Film



” The 486 frames on six feet of film shot by Abraham Zapruder on November 22, 1963, weigh several ounces, but they are visual evidence of a moment in time that defined America for decades.

In the bits of footage taken by the Bell & Howell camera at 12:30pm on the day of U.S. President John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Frame 313 is most notorious for depicting the final fatal bullet from Lee Harvey Oswald’s gun.

The Zapruder reel is indispensable as historical record of an incident that scarred the country and has captivated conspiracy theorists ever since.”
