The JFK Nix Film with Gayle Nix Jackson
February 13 @ 9:00 pm - February 14 @ 12:00 am UTC-8
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. 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.
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.
