Goofs

Ruth Paine and Marina are shown watching the motorcade on live television and thus the confusion and bedlam of the assassination aftermath. There was no television coverage of the motorcade, and in fact, what they are seeing on the television is film taken at the time and broadcast much later. See more »

Lukewarm bio of Oswald's widow
6 November 1998 | by buxSee all my reviews

Made for TV during the hoopla of the 30th anniversary of the assassination, this is a somewhat one-sided look at the events surrounding the tragic incident. For the uninitiated, this movie will provide some sketchy background on the events in the early life of LHO and the assassination. It's obvious that pains were taken to project Ms. Oswalds' story here as objective as possible, considering the scenes of her shortly after the event, running amok around town. The picture does attain a sense of reality to this extent-the viewer expects Marina to blow the lid off the conspiracy throughout-and so we do in real life!
