He went to school with Simon & Garfunkle and Joey Ramone, was an expert witness in the O.J. Simpson trial and worked with Oliver Stone…
Now author / conspiracy theorist Robert Groden is in Kansas City preparing to blow the lid off the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. Again.
“Some years ago I worked for a company in New York and Life Magazine wanted to see if they could blow the Zapruder Film up from 8mm to 35mm for theatrical release,” Groden says. “And we had done work on Woodstock so they brought it to us and an extra copy was made and I ended up with it. And that’s what I released on national television on Geraldo Rivera‘s show.”
It was the first time the film was shown on TV, Groden says.
Now he’s working with Uptown Theater main man Larry Sells to unleash another Kennedy Assassination first.Sells’ Conspiracy Publishing is publishing Groden’s book JFK: Absolute Proof in conjunction with the 50th anniversary of Kennedy’s assassination this November.
“We’re going to have some events at Prospero’s Uptown Books later in the year,” Sells says. “And Robert will be involved in doing a series of speaking engagements at The Conspiracy.”
“The book’s done,” Groden says.
Any new revelations?
“Oh, yes,” Groden says. “That’s what we’ve been holding back. There’s a witness who was talking to Lee Harvey Oswald as the shots went off and the Warren Commission found out about it and told her to keep her mouth shut.”
For the uninitiated, the Warren Commission was created by President Lyndon B. Johnson to investigate Kennedy’s assassination shortly after his death.
“Back when Lee Harvey Oswald was shot the official story was that he was dead on arrival when he got to the hospital,” Groden says. “Not true. I acquired nine rolls of film taken of Oswald at the hospital after he died. The film was never processed and never developed until a year ago.
“They cut him open; they tried heart massage; they removed parts of his body that were damaged and all of this is on the film. Nine rolls, 85 pictures. But the total number of photographs in the book will be in excess of 1,200.”
How good is Groden at uncovering prickly details and getting to the bottom of things? Good enough that Stone hired him as a technical adviser on the film “JFK,” and Groden landed four small parts in the movie.
“In one I played the technician who created the phony backyard picture of Oswald holding the rifle,” Groden says. “I thought the movie was wonderful, and as a documentary filmmaker I thought it was remarkably well done.”
Fifty years of deception are coming to an end…
