Noted film historian, critic, and journalist Joseph McBride has quietly maintained a parallel career for decades. While he was writing acclaimed biographies of Orson Welles, Steven Spielberg, John Ford, and Frank Capra, he worked as a columnist and critic for Daily Variety, and while he taught in the Department of Cinema at San Francisco State University, McBride dedicated a separate track of his life to researching the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. During this 50-year anniversary of JFK's death, McBride will discuss his new book, Into the Nightmare: My Search for the Killers of President John F. Kennedy and Officer J.D. Tippit.
