No, Backes. The beefy, muscular Lovelady is how he originally appeared in Three Shots That Changed America. The slimmer version came later.
What happened is that the original version was online, including Youtube. But then, it disappeared. They put up a notice saying "violation of license" or whatever. And then it came back, and when it did, Lovelady was slimmer, and it was like the original never existed.
But, I even have it in a gif that someone made from the original. I didn't make this, and I didn't do anything to it. This is how it came:
That's pretty long, and a lot of it has since been cut out of the film as it's shown today. Not only is "Lovelady" slimmer, but you never get a clear crisp shot of him, as you do here, and the whole clip is very fast and very blurred. They actually deliberately reduced the quality.
The whole story of this clip is ridiculous. You've got the big cop and Oswald trudging alone, the other men trudging behind them, and at no point does the cop turn right. In the other version (from Four Days in November) you immediately see the big cop moving rightward with Oswald.
The big cop is heading for that door. From the schematic below, it appears to be an Interview/Supply room.
Is there someone in there? We don't know. If there is, it's definitely not Fritz because the clock on the coat rack says 2:00, and Fritz didn't get back to City Hall until later. That's why Oswald's first interview didn't begin until 3:15.
You see it says 3:15. So, what happened when the big cop opened that door, and presumably no one was there? Look at the schematic again. Do you think someone was waiting in that small windowless room? Just hanging out in there?
That's followed by the cameramen snapping pictures of Oswald who was put into a room, but certainly not that room. So, did they have the whole wagon train backup? Who knows. But, the point is that that story is very different from this story:
But, they are supposed to be the same story. But, in the above story, the cop and Oswald are just walking into the wall. They never turn right.
It's all fake. Every version is fake. Lovelady was NEVER there. He was never in that room. He never said he was in that room. His wife never said he was in that room, and surely he would have told his chatty wife. And repeatedly, he said that the last time he saw Oswald was when they broke for lunch at 11:50. He certainly would not have forgotten the momentous encounter of him being at the center of Oswald's arrival.
And something else to think about is this: we can't presume that at that point Lovelady knew anything about Oswald being a suspect. Why should he know? Nobody ever said it was the talk of the Depository. It was only 2:00, just 1 1/2 hours after the shooting. It was only 15 minutes after Oswald was apprehended at the theater. So, at that moment, Lovelady, presumably, didn't know squat. So, why doesn't he react shocked here at seeing his co-worker being led in by police? This was mild-mannered, passive, reclusive Lee Oswald. Shouldn't Lovelady be shocked? Shouldn't he be stunned to see him? But, he's not.
Lovelady doesn't even turn to look at Oswald. He's not even paying attention to Oswald. In addition to everything else, behaviorally, this is all wrong. It doesn't add up. It doesn't make sense. The script, the story is just not credible. As if Lovelady would sit there like a lump on a log as Lee Oswald was led in. He knew Oswald, and he knew what this was about. His reaction (that is, his lack of reaction) is bull. Just plain bull.
