In 1975, Robert Groden brought Abraham Zapruder’s home movie of President Kennedy’s assassination to a national audience for an inaugural viewing on a television program that was hosted by Geraldo Rivera and Dick Gregory. Groden has insisted the footage proves Kennedy was killed in a crossfire by at least two shooters, not by a lone gunman as the official inquiry had concluded.
Devoting his entire adult life to trying to uncover the truth of what happened, he swore at President Kennedy’s graveside that would never give up the quest.
