This should rightfully be called 59 Greatest Unsolved Mysteries. Having watched this whole DVD, I can honestly say there are some intriguing stories here. The one that shouldn't be on here is the one dealing with the supposed escape of John Wilkes Booth. I say "supposed" because anyone who has studied the history of the Lincoln assassination and its aftermath would have no doubt that Booth was killed on April 26, 1865, by Federal troops who surrounded the barn and set it ablaze, hoping to smoke Booth out. A sergeant named Boston Corbett, without orders, shot Booth through the neck, cutting his spinal cord and causing Instant paralysis. The autopsy later was done in Washington, D.C. and over 100 people recognized his body without any doubt. This escape theory has once again captured the imagination of the public almost 100 years after the book by a lawyer named Finis L. Bates called "The Escape and Suicide of John Wilkes Booth" was published. Trouble was and is that it is simply a work of fiction and has so many wrong facts that the serious student of the assassination would have no problem discounting the work as a story, an interesting piece of fluff.
The rest of the DVD is thought-provoking and deals with many topics that even today are capturing the interest of many people. Want to know what happened to Jimmy Hoffa? Or what is going on at Roswell? Even the last bit, the assassination of JFK, is "shrouded in mystery." You decide.
