The slanted object in the window is an artifact from the morphing "restoration" of assassination films done for "JFK: The Lost Bullet".

In trying to eliminate the blotches caused by heat damage to the Hughes film, they used a process to smooth out the sharp edges. Ironically, a slanted rifle-like object appears in the window about where one might expect it to be if there was a rifle there. It's still quite a find for something briefly-appearing in an animation.

I find "The Lost Bullet" restoration worked well for motion transitions and eliminated much of the blur and damage. The restorations just don't stand up to frame-by-frame analysis.

Very ironic, thanks Jerry!

Yes it looks a little off, but close enough to make one wonder...

Because Malcolm Wallace was not a very good shot . It took Malcolm Wallace to start bludgeoning Henry Marshall with a blunt object and then shoot Marshall " 5 " times with the victims own rifle and then he pumped him full of Carbon monoxide from his truck and then he dumped his body on his own land . Corrupt Sheriff Howard Stegall immediately ruled it a suicide which was quickly confirmed by the Justice of the peace , Lee Farmer who saw no pictures of the victim . What was Malcolm Wallace's fingerprint doing on the 6th floor on a box in the snipers lair ? Nathan Darby had a 34 point match on the print which belonged to Mac Wallace !

Easy to see, the problem with the other idea of a figure or gun  is if you look and believe it is a barrel there is white color there before and after  distorting  everything  around the edge of the windows whether open or closed  then the object which has no proportionality  looks like a crude attempt to tamper with the film. Zoom in other windows long enough and you will see all sorts of things

Zapruder film sprocket is as strange as you get  at the top of the County records building

In my model, the strike point for the Max Holland/Lost Bullet theory is on the outer arm of the traffic light assembly.

The seated shooter's left hand would have to hold the rifle with the trigger-guard housing to be clear of the pipes. Also the center of the rifle butt-plate is about four inches above the un-artictulated right shoulder. Unless the right shoulder rises some distance while pointing a rifle down, the shooter would have to standing.

This is academic as there is too much against a first shot as early as Max Holland has proposed.

Nice work Jerry! Yes, I agree, Max Holland's theory appears to be a little early. Could you please give me the locations and dimensions of the pipes that you have come up with so that I may add them to my model? It could be that the left arm bumped the pipes during the tracking motion. And that that caused the shot to miss (in lieu of the boxes). Also, do you have an idea of the timing of Willis' slide #4? It appears to me that it is in the vicinity of Z133. Perhaps a little later. Thanks.
