I screenshotted Robin's gif part 4 (above) at around the same time as the Muchmore frame I found posted on this website by someone (below)
Notice the AP version is cropped. I've found this with almost every version online (so far). The top area above the wall is cropped out at this timeline in the Muchmore film frames. That is, all apart from this one frame posted here.
You can see the cropping removes the most important detail of all.
It's a poor version, faded, and no where near the depth of AP's frame. But inside the circled area the detail is pretty interesting.
There's two areas I've circled which appear to be detailed. below
1) is mildly red/orange with a whitish blob in the middle 2) has a blue-ish surround with a white blob in the middle
With emboss filter or edge filter applied these areas are pretty prominent. Even for such a poor image.
the figure on the left is kinda human-like. Even appears to be wearing a cap.
Which brings me to ... you guessed it! BADGE EFFING MAN! Just when you thought it was safe to go back into the JFK investigation waters!
Could this similar detail really have been there in both film & photo. From Muchmore & Moorman's.
It's so alike, uncanny ... Cap wearing figure closest to the steps ... and a flash ... and blue tint ... possible a DPD uniform next to the cap wearing figure.
Are there any versions of Muchmore out there with the 'above wall' area exposed? they all seem cropped, hiding the most interesting bit.
