Ruby and Oswald
Release Date: January 1st, 1978
Not Yet Rated|2 hr. 13 min.
Drawing extensively from the Warren Report, this docudrama characterizes the two most significant personalities involved in the Kennedy assassination. Lee Harvey Oswald (Frederic Forrest) is presented as a troubled loner with a speckled past looking to merely acquire fame for killing the president. Jack Ruby (Michael Lerner), on the other hand, is shown to be rather warm-hearted and patriotic, his killing of Oswald being motivated exclusively by his inordinate affection for the president.
Director: Mel Stuart
