I won’t be blogging for awhile as I’m completing a biography about my grandfather, Orville Nix, and his home movie of the JFK assassination. The Nix Film is widely considered the second most important film of the assassination. Of course to our family, it’s the most important: it shows the Grassy Knoll.
My grandfather was an undereducated, hardworking, government believing Democrat in the Sixties. He had no idea how important his place in history was, he just knew his film could mean a little extra money for his small family. The government took advantage of him. The Media took advantage of him. His friends and some family took advantage of him as well. It’s the American story!
I hope to remedy some of these wrongs while again, pleading for the return of the original film he took on that fateful day. It has been lost. Yes, lost. The only copies available are first-generation copies that still leave room for skepticism that Oswald didn’t act alone….or possibly prove that he did. No one will truly know until the original is found and enhanced using technology not available in 1963 or in 1978 during the Warren Commission the last time the original was presumably seen.
I have spent years dealing with CEO’s (CNN’s Burt Reinhardt & Reese Schonfeld) Politicians (Joe Biden, Robert Blakey) Filmmakers (Oliver Stone, John Barbour) Television producers, experts and authors (David Lifton, Robert Groden, Gary Mack, Jim Marrs) trying to find the Nix Film to no avail. If there is no conspiracy, is our government this mismanaged? It all seems odd to me….and it did to my grandfather as well.
I hope to share some portions of this work here before its published. In the interim, feel free to comment on any social media using the hashtag: #FindtheNixFilm
