Gayle Nix Jackson is seeking $10 million in compensation for the film shot by Orville Nix on Nov. 22, 1963.

Nix gave the film to the UPI news agency with the understanding that after 25 years it would be returned. However, it was obtained by the Warren Commission and another federal panel that investigated the shooting.

Jackson believes it’s in the possession of the National Archives and Records Administration.

The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza says a film shot by Abraham Zapruder has greater historical value because it shows all of the shooting.
