The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald
Cult filmmaker Larry Buchanan, who had previously shot footage in Jack Ruby's nightclub for his mondo feature Naughty Dallas, directed this speculative trial drama, released within months of Oswald's death. Making use of actual newsreel footage along with courtroom re-creations, Buchanan's film puts Oswald (Arthur Nations) on trial, represented by cult-favorite George Russell, star of the peculiar The Black Cat (1966). Oddly enough, given that Buchanan's later films would suggest conspiracies in the deaths of Marilyn Monroe (Good Night, Sweet Marilyn), Jim Morrison, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix (all in Down on Us), there is no suggestion that anyone but Oswald was responsible for the Kennedy assassination. ~ Robert Firsching, Rovi

The Other Side of Bonnie and Clyde
The legend of the bloody duo is presented from a different perspective in this offbeat outing that features actual footage of the criminal pair, fascinating interviews with former mobster Floyd Hamilton and Sheriff Frank Hammer. It also contains some reenactments. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

    This movie was not what I expected. Interesting but kind of boring. I purchased this movie because I wanted to know the complete story of Bonnie and Clyde.
