The Tall Target 1951

Watching it today on TCM. Based on a real life plot to assassinate Lincoln at his inauguration. Directed by Anthony Mann and starring Dick Powell as police detective John Kennedy. A rifle with a telescopic lens was to be used as the weapon. Filmed 12 years before the JFK assassination ... WTF???!!!
