Zapruder & Stolley: Witness to an Assassination
Zapruder & Stolley

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. Stolley found Abraham Zapruder and purchased the right to reprint stills from footage of the assassination filmed by him.

This film tells his dramatic story.

  • Producer, Director: Roger Sherman
  • Editor: Anna Jacobson
  • Produced in Association with The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza

What the Critics Had to Say

“Zapruder and Stolley is utterly engaging.” —Tom Brokaw

“Dick Stolley is a national treasure, and his ability to calmly, clearly tell the story of one of America’s saddest days is truly remarkable. This documentary is devoid of the usual bells and whistles. It’s just unbelievably powerful, old-school storytelling. And what a story it is.” —John Huey, editor-in-chief, Time Inc.
