[edit] Information

Oswald, Kennedy, and the conspiracy that will not die. This film was made for the 50th anniversary of the Kennedy assassination and is a minute-by-minute account of the intense, final two days of Oswald's life – his shooting of JFK, his attempt to flee, his capture by the Dallas police, and the grueling interrogation by Dallas detectives prior to being shot by Jack Ruby. What did Lee Harvey Oswald do in the 48 hours after he shot President John F. Kennedy? This riveting History Channel documentary follows Oswald in the immediate aftermath of the assassination, searching for the answers to the questions that have troubled America for a half century: Did he actually pull the trigger? Was he alone? And if so, why? Steven M. Gillon, Scholar-in-Residence at the History Channel, explores the possibility that Cuban intelligence officials may have encouraged Oswald to commit the crime and promised to help him escape. Gillon recreates in painstaking detail the long interrogation sessions and reveals that many of the police officers who witnessed the sessions were convinced that Oswald had received special training. He was simply too good at deflecting questions, too smart, too confident. With new information from recently declassified documents, this documentary offer a refreshingly new and complicated portrait of the man who assassinated President John F. Kennedy. The assassination of President John F. Kennedy remains one of the most well-documented and deeply-scrutinized events in American history. Physical and circumstantial evidence lead to the Government's official conclusion – though the majority of Americans still dispute it – that a lone gunman named Lee Harvey Oswald pulled the trigger in Dealey Plaza on November 22, 1963. But five decades later, one question still perplexes the experts: who was Lee Harvey Oswald? LEE HARVEY OSWALD: 48 HOURS TO LIVE is a minute-by-minute account of the intense, final two days of Oswald's life. Shot in original locations such as the Texas Theater and Ruth Paine's home, film traces the Oswald story moment by moment with a focus on the events surrounding that shocking November weekend in Dallas. It is the first documentary to film inside the Dallas Municipal Building to tell Oswald's story, where the old Dallas Police Department was housed, and the only one to accurately portray Oswald's interrogation inside Captain Will Fritz's actual office. For those who were with him in the last 48 hours of his life, Oswald was an enigma. The puzzles only became more complicated as the interrogation went on. FBI agents dismissed him as arrogant and argumentative. The numerous Dallas detectives in the interrogation room observed him in complete control. To Captain Will Fritz, the widely respected head of Homicide who spent more time with Oswald after the shooting than anyone else, the suspect was almost too good–too skilled at anticipating questions, too quick to deflect probing inquiries, too calm and fearless in the face of the charges against him. Did Oswald receive special training in how to avert police questioning? Did he secretly travel to the Cuban and Soviet embassies in Mexico City just weeks prior to Nov. 22nd for an alleged meeting with a KGB colonel? A story that raised more questions than it answered. Based on the book "Lee Harvey Oswald: 48 Hours to Live " by Steven M. Gillon. Produced, Written and Directed by Anthony Giacchino ; A Time Travel Unlimited, LLC Production for HISTORY / A&E Television Networks
