The Paine House in Irving, - 2525 Fifth Street - now a museum.
BK NOTES: As I post this a documentary film is being premiered at the Texas Theater in Oak Cliff, Dallas called "Truth Is Our Only Client," about the original Warren Commission with interviews with Burt Griffin, Howard Willis, Ruth Paine and others who still maintain the "Phase Two" Cover-Story that Lee Harvey Oswald was the lone assassin of President Kennedy. If that is so, then truth is being poorly served.
Thanks to Gary Shaw for reminding me of what I wrote on the passing of Michael Paine a few years ago, as I apparently have forgot more than I remember.
I think still living Warren Commission attorney Sam Stern said it best to the HSCA, - that had they known about the destruction of the Hosty note and the CIA-Mafia plots to kill Castro they would have conducted a different investigation. While I don't know if Stern is interviewed on this film, I think his view should be known.
And just as Oliver Stone's movie "JFK" was panned before it was even released, we shouldn't judge this film until we have seen it. - BK
Michael Paine - June 25, 1928 - March 1, 2018
One issue is whether the Minox camera found in the Paine garage belonged to Lee Oswald or to aine. Another issue is what activities Lee Oswald and Michael Paine had in common, given Michael Paine's statement to Frontline (Who Was Lee Harvey Oswald?, PBS) that he and Lee Oswald shared unspecified interests.
After his marriage to Ruth Paine he settled in Irving, Texas. The couple were both active members of the American Civil Liberties Union.
In between these two dates, on March 13, Oswald purchases, or orders, the rifle. On April 2 Ruth invites the Oswalds to dinner. On April 7, Ruth writes a note, asking Marina to come and live with her. She never sends this note, but she keeps it. On April 11 she visits Marina again. On April 20 there's a picnic with the Oswalds and Ruth Paine. And by the end of the month, Marina is staying with Ruth temporarily, while Lee goes to New Orleans to seek employment and try to find an apartment.
There are a few basic fats about Michael Paine that are not being reported upon his death.
