Zappy Birthday

Today is Abraham Zapruder’s birthday. He’s the guy who filmed the Kennedy assassination. He was born in 1905.

Zapruder was a manufacturer of women’s clothing. He co-founded Jennifer Juniors, inc. in 1949. The lady who stood behind him when he filmed the assassination was Marilyn Sitzman. She was one of his assistants. Zapruder had vertigo, so Marilyn stood behind Zapruder on the pedestal that extended from the retaining wall that was part of the John Neely Bryan pergola on the grassy knoll. She steadied him as he filmed.
Zapruder died in 1970 and Sitzman died in 1993
