The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza in Dallas, TX is releasing a newly found color film which shows President John F. Kennedy's motorcade ninety seconds before the president was assassinated in November of 1963.

The museum provides the following description with the film:

"This newly-discovered home movie of the fateful Kennedy motorcade was recently donated to The Sixth Floor Museum at Dealey Plaza. The photographer, George Jefferies, filmed President and Mrs. Kennedy on Main Street at Lamar in downtown Dallas less than 90 seconds before the assassination. Secret Service agent Clint Hill, assigned to protect Jackie Kennedy, can be seen riding on the left rear bumper. The donor, Wayne Graham, is the son-in-law of Mr. Jefferies."

This video also includes a short news briefing about the film from MSNBC News.
