REHASHING THE JOHN F. KENNEDY ASSASSINATION HAS TURNED INTO AN OBSESSION rivaling the "Elvis lives" phenomenon, and there are about as many theories about who killed the President as there were sightings of the King a few years ago. The latest comes in the form of The JFK Assassination: The Jim Garrison Tapes, airing between July 22 and Aug. 9 on Viewer's Choice, the pay-per-view cable channel.

The documentary includes interviews with witnesses to the shooting and what the producers contend is new evidence that Lee Harvey Oswald didn't fire a gun on that fateful day. Oddly, this movie involving New Orleans District Attorney Garrison comes along just as another film about him, Oliver Stone's JFK, premieres on pay-per-view. Coincidence or promotional gimmick?
