The Trial of Lee Harvey Oswald

john robert pleshette producer

(ABC, 9/30/1977 and 10/2/1977, 2 Parts, 120 mins each, 4 hours). The bizarre speculative story (told in two parts over four hours) behind the man accused of assassinating John F. Kennedy and what might have happened had he been brought to trial. The title is all that is left of the 1967 Off-Broadway play by Amram Ducovny and Leon Friedman. John Pleshette, whose resemblance to the real Lee Harvey Oswald is remarkable, is the brother of actress Suzanne Pleshette.
