Three-time Academy Award-winning director, producer and screenwriter Oliver Stone joins us for the hour to discuss the 50th anniversary of President John F. Kennedy’s assassination on November 22, which was chronicled in his blockbuster film, JFK. A Vietnam War veteran, Stone has made around two dozen acclaimed Hollywood films, including Platoon, Salvador, Born on the Fourth of July, Nixon, South of the Border and Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps. A commemorative edition of JFK comes out next week. Most recently, Stone has co-written the 10-part Showtime series, Oliver Stone’s Untold History of the United States, and companion book with the same name, co-written by Peter Kuznick, professor of history and director of the Nuclear Studies Institute at American University.
