Zapruder & Stolley: Witness to an Assassination

On November 22, 1963, Life Magazine’s LA bureau chief Richard Stolley, learned via teletype that President John F. Kennedy had been shot.

Racing to the scene in Dallas, he accomplished what is now considered one of the most significant journalistic coups of the 20th century, purchasing the right to reprint stills from footage of the assassination filmed by Abraham Zapruder.

This film tells his dramatic story.
