The 50th: Remembering JFK
This photo taken on March 13, 2010, shows tourists walking past the former Texas School Book Depository Building in Dealey Plaza, where Lee Harvey Oswald carried out the 1963 assasination of US President John F. Kennedy in Dallas. Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks has recently announced he will produce a television mini-series debunking the conspiracy theories surrounding Kennedy's assassination. Hanks and his partner in the Playtone production house, Gary Goetzman, will be the executive producers on the project which will adapt the book "Reclaiming History: The Assassination of President John F. Kennedy." "I think that we will finally be able to make a substantial dent in the 75 percent of people in this country who still believe the conspiracy theorists," said author of the book Vincent Bugliosi.
