Dallas unveiled a simple but eternal tribute yesterday to the memory of President John F. Kennedy, dedicating the plaza where he was slain as a National Historic Landmark. Before 5,000 spectators and dignitaries, twin fighter jets thundered low above Dealey Plaza and a flock of white doves fluttered skyward marking the exact moment of the assassination 30 years ago. It was 12:30 p.m., Nov. 22, then and now. The ceremony was one of many events throughout the world yesterday at which Kennedy's life and brief presidency were remembered.

Nov. 22, 1963, was the day President John F. Kennedy was assassinated in Dallas. For many, that date is a vivid memory. For many of those born since then, the day is almost ancient history. More than 38 years later, theories about the assassination, conspiracy and otherwise, abound. And so does the collecting of memorabilia related to that event. There are books, newspapers, magazines, ceramic plates, pins and photos. There's even a 1 hour and 21 minute-long video supposedly taped at the Joliet, Ill., Penitentiary in which an alleged CIA and mob-affiliated shooter confesses to his role in the JFK assassination.

WASHINGTON Amateur film captures moments before JFK hit An amateur film that captured President Kennedy and his wife, Jacqueline, in the minutes before he was shot was released yesterday by a federal board compiling a public record of the assassination. The three-minute, 16-millimeter film was taken by Dave Powers, a presidential aide who accompanied the Kennedys on the trip to Texas Nov. 21-22, 1963. Its release came on the day before the 33rd anniversary of the assassination by the Assassination Records Review Board.

In Platoon and Born on the Fourth of July, Oliver Stone reopened the still festering wounds of the Vietnam war. With JFK, he takes up the terrible day that changed history and our lives and, in a movie that fuses molten rage with cool argument, presents the death of a president as a cancer that has metastasized through the body politic. Call JFK - which may not be quite the best movie released this year but is certainly the most important - paranoid, polemical and distorted. True believers in the bitterly disputed conclusions of the Warren Commission report may use those words if they are feeling polite.

I spent the weekend studying an 84-page binder of documents I received by express from Florida publishing executive Bill Loiry. It is an exhibit Loiry assembled, as a concerned citizen, to test the substance of newly circulating rumors that George Bush may have been the key figure in an October 1980 secret-arms pact with Iran to sink the re-election bid of President Jimmy Carter by delaying the release of the 52 American hostages then held in...

On Saturday, it will be 40 years since President John F. Kennedy was assassinated as he rode in that motorcade in Dallas. But in my mind's eye, it seems as though it were yesterday. Just a mention of that November day evokes names, faces, and scenes that come to mind almost without effort. Oswald, Ruby, Connally - these are last names that, for my generation, can stand alone without first names. Parkland Hospital, the Schoolbook Depository Building, Dealey Plaza, Elm Street - the streets, buildings, and public places of Dallas.

Under my supervision, a group of investigators has gone over the locations that Oliver Stone used in directing the movie, "JFK," among them Dealey Plaza and the Book Depository in Dallas. On the first take several pedestrians got in the way. On the second the film was out of focus. On the third I forgot to take off the lens cap. In no case did we get precisely the same results the Stone did. It seems fair to conclude that one person, unaided, could not possibly have made "JFK.

If you recently saw the hit movie JFK and want to know more about the assassination of John F. Kennedy, The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald is a good place to start. Host Bill Kurtis describes the five-hour special on cable's Arts & Entertainment like this: "There is no script, there has been no rehearsal. The judge is a real judge, the lawyers are lawyers, the witnesses are all genuine. No actor will be playing Lee Harvey Oswald: The defendant's chair is empty. " In fact, no actors are involved at all. Presiding is Lucius D. Bunton 3d, a federal judge in Texas since 1979.

Dealey Plaza, the grassy knoll, the Texas School Book Depository . . . Interview With the Assassin revisits the eerie streetscape of 1963 Dallas, and the day (39 years ago today, in fact) when John F. Kennedy was shot and killed. While the central mystery of writer-director Neil Burger's provocative, documentary-style feature has its roots in that world-changing event, the film is set in the here and now, where truth and fiction blur on a nightly cavalcade of "reality" TV shows, where government conspiracies are taken as a given, and where paranoia limns the corridors of everyday life.

WE STARE at the screen as the motorcade turns into Dealey Plaza. We see the young president and his wife wave to an adoring crowd from the back of their limo. And we hold our breath. On cue, the shots ring out. And for the 50th year in a row, we watch Walter Cronkite tell us what we already know. We return to the scene of the crime every year like pilgrims to the hallowed shrine where their faith was born. Those of us of the "where-were-you-when" generation retell our stories to those too young to remember.

THE BULLETS that struck and killed President John F. Kennedy in Dallas' Dealey Plaza on Nov. 22, 1963, at 12:30 p.m. CST, echoed around the world – but the reverberations were especially loud in Philadelphia. Like so much about the JFK assassination, the connections aren't always on the surface. After all, Kennedy was the product of a Boston dynasty, slain on a Texas street - allegedly by an assassin who'd drifted around the globe. But in just a few years, the 35th president had forged a surprisingly deep bond with the City of Brotherly Love.

Until the very end, Sen. Arlen Specter insisted that one shooter - and only one - killed President John F. Kennedy. The "single bullet theory" was no theory, Specter would snap whenever the topic came up. "It's a conclusion," he repeatedly asserted. Specter, who died in 2012, was a rising young prosecutor when he joined the Warren Commission to investigate the Kennedy assassination. In a decision that continues to draw critics and controversy, the commission pinned the killing on Lee Harvey Oswald.
