Four Days in November uniquely documents the events and immediate reaction to the President Kennedy assassination in Dallas, Texas. Released in 1964, just one year after the tragic event, this fascinating film captures the early responses from witnesses, news footage and home movies. The shock is still palpable. Unlike the conspiracy focused perspectives today, the documentary captures the early days of the nation's response and the nature of media at the time. Lee Harvey Oswald is identified as the lone gunman, and described by his former landlady, Earlene Roberts, and co-worker, Wesley Frazier, who gave him a ride to the Texas School Book Depository that fateful Friday morning. Clips and re-enactments provide details from the President's arrival in Dallas, the motorcade's course, the swearing-in of Lyndon B. Johnson and Jack Ruby's shooting of Oswald. Director Mel Stuart ("The Making of a President") received an Oscar nomination for this thoughtful archive of a definitive moment in American history.
