Factual error: In the scene where there is a train passing, the cars are marked "Burlington Northern." There was NO Burlington Northern until 1970, 7 years AFTER the shooting.

Dean Andrews: Kennedy's as dead as that crab meat, the government's alive and breathing. You gonna line up with a dead man, Jimbo?

Trivia: In JFK Wayne Knight plays Numa Bertel. In Seinfeld Wayne Knight plays Newman. In JFK he was used in Jim Garrison's demonstration of the single bullet theory. In Seinfeld he and Kramer told Jerry a story exactly the same as the single bullet theory only that it was spit that hit them not a bullet. Jerry then does the same demonstration that Jim Garrison did in JFK to explain the story. The layout is also the same in both the film and Seinfeld.

Question: Was the head movement argument to the jury verbatim from the transcript of the actual trial of Clay Shaw?

Answer: No. The argument which mentions was the first closing argument by an assistant to Garrison and in it he mentions "back and to the left" once but not the multiple statements shown in the movie. The actual transcripts are available on line.
