by Gayle Nix Jackson

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available

The unflinching true story of an ordinary man swept up in an extraordinary event.


Orville Nix: The Missing JFK Assassination Film is not the typical JFK Assassination book. This book does not attempt to answer "who" killed JFK but why we should question the actions of the time and why the truth was withheld from the people. Written in a narrative style, the book shares the story of Orville Nix and how he was intimidated yet remained adamant to what he witnessed that horrific day. His camera original film that shows the grassy knoll in its entirety is missing. Why? What could it reveal? If you believe everything happens for a reason, there is a reason he was there with a camera on November 22, 1963. It is time to find the Nix film and find out why it is important.

About the author

Gayle Nix-Jackson describes herself as a “one-time goddess who had a reality check.” To the rest of the world, she is that woman who knows more about baseball than she should and names her pets after philosophers. She was the Desoto High School liaison reporter for the Desoto Today Newspaper in Texas. After moving from college to college in her youth she finally settled on Dallas Baptist University and holds a double major in Business and English, as well as an MA from Texas Woman’s University in English and Rhetoric. She went on to become the first Online Writing Tutor for the OWL lab at TWU, publishing several academic papers on rhetoric and electronic discourse. She was in downtown Dallas the day her grandfather took the famous Nix film of the JFK assassination. In 1988, 25 years after he sold his film to UPI, Gayle negotiated with the now defunct company to have the film returned to her family. It was at that time she found the camera original film was missing. She has been searching for it ever since. Oliver Stone used the Nix film in his film “JFK” and she appeared on several television shows and newscasts including Montel Williams, Geraldo, Entertainment Tonight, and several radio and local newscasts. John Barbour, the godfather of reality TV, interviewed her for his award winning documentary, The Garrison Tapes that has recently been re-released. Orville Nix: The Missing JFK Assassination Film is Nix-Jackson’s first of several books regarding the horrific events of November 22, 1963. She hopes her readers will educate their children about the mishandling of the investigation into the JFK assassination and help in her ultimate quest to find the missing Nix film. Gayle lives in Texas with her husband Darryl, daughter Taylor, son Chance, her father Orville Nix, Jr. and her precious pets, Socrates, Antigone (Annie), and Joy.
