If I remember correctly, it was shown in the few minutes of a documentary about a man jailed with a Mafia boss who admitted to him that he had JFK killed.

    I am only getting 1 still frame and Not the roughly 10 seconds of footage.

I’ll have internet access on my laptop only tomorrow. I’ll upload the film if I can find it.

02:19   Darnell positioned himself across from the TSBD doorway. He films Howard Brennan on the steps as Brennan spins to his left, twists and takes a spit near the mailboxes. In the doorway a small boy stands on low steps near the west columns. Other men are present - including officers and Don Cook of KTVT Dallas News. A car is parked in front and to the west side of the doorway may be Inspector Sawyers'.

02:24   Darnell continues the scene panning upward toward the sixth floor windows. The windows next to the corner window set are still closed.

I have 10 seconds of this scene. I also remember that I have about 10 seconds of footage of Darnell film I have seen only in one TV show.
Denis,
The doorway scene runs from 2:19 to 2:24 but the scene continues until the Euins scene at 2:30. Thus, the single scene is 11 seconds. Are you thinking the doorway scene by itself is about 10 seconds?
For your second clip not on the SFM video can you rule out other cameramen?

Darnell Film at SFM - Part 3 – Back in the Plaza
FOV      =   Field of View
DMDFC   =   Denis Morissette's excellent Darnell Film Compilation (DMDFC) found in this forum at this link:
 https://www.jfkassassinationforum.com/index.php/topic,1762.msg46530.html#msg46530
 
Darnell left the Railroad/Parking area via the passage between the west pergola shelter and the east facing stockade fence.
Scene11   FOV   19°                     DMDFC 02:08
01:35   Darnell rotates the lens turret for narrow angle closeups of the stockade fence, officer, suited man with coat draped over his right arm and a girl with a dangling purse wearing a dark top with light skirt. The officer persuades her to leave the area. Still filming, Darnell pans to his left showing the sidewalk, bench and retaining wall as a crowd gathers. I believe Darnell's location is near the west side of the south entrance of the west pergola shelter..

Scene12   FOV   38°                     DMDFC 02:27
01:40   At or near the west side of the retaining wall somewhat behind the bench, he returns the lens to a wider field of view and films the grassy infield with the growing crowds. The girl from the last scene is now running down the grassy slope towards a group of people on the Elm street sidewalk. Most of this scene is well known.. However, the last few seconds include a tanker truck entering to its full length at left of frame. The tanker truck is new to me. At first I thought the tanker truck was an indicator that the scene in Denis' compilation was from a different cameraman, possibly Jim Underwood. However, I now  realize we've only seen a slightly trimmed scene from Darnell.


Scene13   FOV 38°                     DMDFC  02:47
01:48   Darnell films a closeup of Marilyn Sitzman interviewed by Dallas deputy sheriff Bill Wiseman..Use the link to Denis Morissette's JFK Assassination Investigators Identification Project and search for Wiseman.:

In the last few seconds of the full Tina Towner film, viewable at the Sixth Floor Museum's online collection, Jimmy Darnell scrams from his position eastward to soon reach and film three young women.

Scene14   FOV 38°                     DMDFC 02:45 (very short early portion of this scene)
01:54   Darnell films closeups of those three young women walking slowly eastward on the pergola patio steps.

The women are the same women in the Zapruder film at the lower left of the Stemmons Freeway sign.

Only short segments of this Darnell scene are in the wild. The three young women are Stella Jacobs, Jeanie Holt and Sharon Simmons.
02:04   This scene continues as Detective “Lummie” Lewis catches up to the girls from behind as they pass the east pedestal.
02:06   The three girls stop while Lewis continues, passing them on their left side then stops and turns to face the girls.
02:08   Sharon Simmons points with her left index finger over her right shoulder to indicate where they were standing when the President Kennedy was shot.
02:10   Darnell takes a closeup of Stella Mae Jacobs. Lewis brings up a hand-sized note pad to record information from the three women. He will add their names and info to his Sheriff's Department Supplementary Investigation Report.

Scene15   FOV 38° (probably)                  DMDFC   not present
02:15   Darnell films a closeup of Jeanie Holt's face as she looks directly at the camera while speaking.

Scene16   FOV 38°                       DMDFC   not present
02:19   Darnell positioned himself across from the TSBD doorway. He films Howard Brennan on the steps as Brennan spins to his left, twists and takes a spit near the mailboxes. In the doorway a small boy stands on low steps near the west columns. Other men are present - including officers and Don Cook of KTVT Dallas News. A car is parked in front and to the west side of the doorway may be Inspector Sawyer's.

02:24   Darnell continues the scene panning upward toward the sixth floor windows. The windows next to the corner window set are still closed.

Scene17   FOV (unknown)                  DMDFC   not present
02:30   From the rear driver's side Darnell films a closeup of  Amos Euins in the back seat of a car (Inspector Sawyer's?). Euins turns his head to his right window responding to one or two people.
02:46    End of Dealey Plaza filming. The next scene is at Parkland.

[emphasis added by MWT]

James,

Great work!

Please tell us why you think those three women Darnell was filming were the same three women who were standing by the Stemmons sign in the Zapruder film.

Thanks!

    The still frame showing the front steps of the TSBD is Valuable due to it displaying the Shadow being cast by the column/west wall across the steps. We see a person coming down the steps on the West side of the handrail NOT being touched by that shadow. ABOVE him is a suited man standing even further West of the handrail and he is also Untouched by the shadow. This alleged shadow falling on Lovelady has been a contentious issue on another Thread on this Forum.

The film of the still frame I posted above does not seem to be present in the documentary I had in mind.

By any chance, does the boy or the woman have a "coke-cola" (sic) bottle in his/her hands?

Todd Vaughn told me that the frames I post are not of the Darnell film. Sorry for concluding too fast.
