The most famous 8MM movie footage ever taken was shot by Dallas dress manufacturer Abraham Zapruder of the John F. Kennedy assassination in Dallas, Texas November 22nd 1963. This is the exact model of 8 MM camera Abraham Zapruder used to shoot the film. The film was shot on top of a concrete mound on the grassy knoll in Daily Plaza. It is a record of a few seconds before the assassination, what happened to President Kennedy during the assassination and a second or so after the assassination. The Abraham Zapruder film is a mere 486 frames, just six feet of film celluloid and lasts only 26 seconds.
Zupruder sold the 26 second film for $150,000 to Time-Life. That was a huge amount of money in 1963. Time-Life published some frames in Life Magazine but for many years, would not permit most of the public to view it. Zupruder testified before the Warren Commission. Zapruder passed away in Dallas on 30th August, 1970.
The FBI has the original Abraham Zapruder camera on display (sometimes) otherwise it’s in the National Archives in Washington D.C. under lock and key. The Zapruder film is 26 seconds long and is likely the most famous 26 seconds of film, in American History.
