JFK (1991)
This acclaimed Oliver Stone drama presents the investigation into the assassination of President John F. Kennedy led by New Orleans district attorney Jim Garrison (Kevin Costner). When Garrison begins to doubt conventional thinking on the murder, he faces government resistance, and, after the killing of suspected assassin Lee Harvey Oswald (Gary Oldman), he closes the case. Later, however, Garrison reopens the investigation, finding evidence of an extensive conspiracy behind Kennedy's death.

FADE IN:

Credits run in counterpoint through a 7 to 10 minute sequence

of documentary images setting the tone of John F. Kennedy's

Presidency and the atmosphere of those tense times, 1960

through 1963. An omniscient narrator's voice marches us

through in old time Pathe' newsreel fashion.

VOICE:

January, 1961 - President Dwight D.

Eisenhower's Farewell Address to the

Nation -

EISENHOWER ADDRESS

EISENHOWER:

The conjunction of an immense military

establishment and a large arms

industry is new in the American

experience. The total influence -

economic, political, even spiritual -

is felt in every city, every

statehouse, every office of the

Federal Government... In the councils

of government we must guard against

the acquisition of unwarranted

influence, whether sought or unsought,

by the military industrial complex.

The potential for the disastrous

rise of misplaced power exists and

will persist... We must never let

the weight of this combination

endanger our liberties or democratic

processes. We should take nothing

for granted...
