A 3-D Lighting and Shadow Analysis of the JFK Zapruder Film (Frame 317)
Hany Farid
Dartmouth TR2010-677

Abstract: Claims of a broader conspiracy behind U.S. President John F. Kennedy's assassination have persisted for the past nearly five decades. The Zapruder film is considered to be the most complete recording of JFK's assassination. Many have claimed that this 8mm film was manipulated to conceal evidence of a second shooter, which would invalidate the claim that a lone gunman, Lee Harvey Oswald, was responsible for JFK's assassination. Here we consider the viability of one specific claim of postproduction tampering in the Zapruder film.
