Jimmy Darnell was my Father and I can confirm that is him in the picture.
Welcome, Nellie.

How did you come to join the forum?  I don't know where to begin with all the other questions I have, and I'm sure many people over the years have wanted to know the whereabouts of any complete version of your father's film in Dealey Plaza, but I'm gonna just stick with: did your father ever make any comments to you about that day?  I hope you don't mind my asking.  Many who were there, including reporters, kept their feelings pretty close, as people in those days tended to, much more than we do now.  It was a frightening and disheartening experience -- not just "the big story".

Anyway, thanks for the i.d. of him in the pic, every fact matters.

Timing is good, suit is a match and what's that shape near his rhand pocket?
Trask's instinct was right on the money.


Jackson got all the credit and reward where Darnell got barely a mention, despite outclassing him as a newsman and when it really mattered too.  I'd be embarrassed to be related to the former because each year that passes his story becomes less and less believable but what's not to like about Jimmy?  I think enthusiasts are realising, finally, just what a solid job he did that day.  His path to the carpark and back are much like that of a detective's, looking for clues then recording them as he goes.

I actually stumbled onto this Forum by accident. I was searching for a video of my Dad that my husband had never seen, and noticed that my Dad's name was mentioned a lot on this website and am always on the lookout for articles or pictures that my Mom may not already be in possession of. To be honest, I was a little concerned about posting, but noticed all the questions/discussion about whether or not it was him in a particular video snippet, so I thought I'd try to help. My Dad did one or two big interviews about the assassination, but was very humble and more interested in being behind the camera as opposed to in front of it. I think he also just wanted to move on from it. However, is was a topic of discussion within our family and close circle of friends that he was always very willing to talk about it and recounted details openly. And, yes, there has been a lot of controversy about all the original footage and it's whereabouts. I think that's finally been resolved - or at least close to being resolved.
