DALLAS -- More than four decades after President Kennedy was killed, a recently discovered home movie of his motorcade is making its Internet debut.

The silent color film shows a glimpse of JFK and wife Jackie about 90 seconds before the assassination. They're a few blocks from Dealey Plaza, where Kennedy would be shot.

The film was taken by an amateur photographer who recently mentioned it in passing to his son-in-law. The two then agreed to donate the film to the Sixth Floor Museum, which is located inside the old Texas School Book Depository building where Lee Harvey Oswald fired his shots.

The curator believes more such films are likely still out there, considering that about 150,000 people watched the motorcade that fateful November day. This film is available on the museum's Web site.
