In 1966, the groundbreaking documentary 'Rush to Judgment' shattered the prevailing narrative surrounding President John F. Kennedy's assassination. Directed by Emile de Antonio and featuring lawyer Mark Lane, the film unveiled a concise, compelling legal argument challenging the official Warren Commission report, suggesting that Lee Harvey Oswald could not have acted alone.

This documentary broke new ground by presenting unfiltered, first-hand interviews with key witnesses who had direct proximity to the murders but were excluded from the official inquiry. For six decades, the JFK assassination had been the subject of countless rehashes and sensationalized interpretations, but 'Rush to Judgment' emerged as a breath of fresh air.
