The Umbrella Academy in Dallas

https://mattkprovideo.com/2020/08/08/the-umbrella-academy-in-dallas/

Have any of Kennedy assassination buff’s watched Season 2 of “The Umbrella Academy”?

( TV SPOILERS! Stop reading this if you haven’t watched all of it yet!)

The show is kind of a cross between The Xmen and The Watchmen….

Is Season Two the group (SPOILERS)

A mixed up family of super hero types time travels back to Dallas in the early sixties….

When they all get back to together they realize they are there because of a certain historical event about to happen on Dallas in November…

I have read that the show is filmed in Canada,but it sure looks like they are actually there in Dealey Plaza and other places in Dallas in 1963.  I am assuming The actors were green screened over very good CGI of various parts of Dealey Plaza.

They got so much right, the clothing, the cars, the license plates…

Theres birds eye views of the Presidential parade turning the corner of Houston and Elm…. scenes in the govt building across the way…. the parking lot behind the School Book Depository.. the picket fence…

They didn’t have the budget to go to Dallas and fill it with period actors and cars ( like Stones “JFK”) did they?

Apparently not:

PS I wonder how much the City of Dallas charges to let filmmakers take over Dealey Plaza? I bet they’re sick of Kennedy movies.

Theres several great shots of Dealey….. did they fly a drone over the real Dealey and add period cars and such? Add the Hertz sign back onto the book depository? Or was it all CGI?

Whether you’re a conspiracy theorist or lone gunman believer….. you’ll get a kick out of seeing 1963 Dallas in full color.

Wizard of Oswald

The Wizard of Oswald: JFK Assassination Documentary (2013) Full

I am a JFK assassination buff, and I lean heavily towards the “Oswald did it, alone” side.
BUT this video has something important at 1 hr and 2 minutes about Oswald being a government agent and his “assignment” to the soviet union.
I can dismiss part of it as just being  part of his Marine Corp “assignment” near Japan and China…..
…is that document faked?

Monsters in the Closet

Monsters in the Closet – A History of LGBT Representation in Horror Cinema

I suppose that perhaps I am a particularly clueless rock headed straight guy, but I was surprised by how much gay subtext this guy found in the old Universal horror movies. Bram Stoker was gay? The gay subtext, or at least that of a misunderstood outsider is clear in “FRANKENSTEIN” and especially in “BRIDE of FRANKENSTEIN” But I never read that message into DRACULA or THE WOLFMAN.

I often thought that the Dracula story was a metaphor for anti semitism or anti immigration ( the scary mysterious stranger from eastern Europe with a spooky accent spreading disease…. he fears the cross…) but I never thought of as a metaphor for being in the closet ( in the coffin???… hmmmm…)
