New Orleans District Attorney Jim Garrison discovers there's more to the Kennedy assassination than the official story.
Dr. Marion Jenkins, the anesthesiologist, plays himself in the film. He was genuinely surprised at the level of detail and research that had gone into preparation for that key scene. Even the tiles for the set of Trauma Room One were exactly the same shade of green he remembered (even though the scene itself is black and white in the finished film).
"To sin by silence when we should protest makes cowards of men." - Ella Wheeler Wilcox
President Eisenhower: ...We have been compelled to create a permanent armaments industry of vast proportions. And to do this three and a half million men and women are directly engaged...
In Garrison's version of the assassination, the rifleman in the Dal-Tex Building rests his rifle on a metal frame. No one experienced with rifles would rest one on a hard object when firing it. If he did, the vibrations of the barrel would make the rifle jump up, throwing the aim point off the target.

A fake Oswald (Frank Whaley) is seen in a flashback test-driving a new car and talking about Russia to the salesman.
