Caught the Sinatra film Suddenly for the first time the other night.

Don't know if these things have been mentioned before, but I was struck by a few things, including:

The kid, Pidge, is being raised by a single parent, same as Oswald, for the most part,was.

The kid sees a toy pistol in a shop window and wants it - ends up firing a real pistol shooting someone with it. See testimony of Ed Voebel regarding Oswald wanting to steal a pistol from a shop window:

Mr. VOEBEL. Well, this program we had, that was a band concert, and we were listening to the band and I think this was when he revealed the plan for stealing this pistol from a place on Rampart Street.
Mr. JENNER. Did he seek to enlist you in that plan?
Mr. VOEBEL. No; not really, he just told me about it. He had observed a pistol in this window, this show window, on Rampart Street, and his plan was to steal it.
Mr. JENNER. It wasn't one of these collector's items?
Mr. VOEBEL. No; I don't think so. I can't remember the pistol, to tell you the truth, but I don't think it was a collector's piece. It was just a weapon. It might have been a Smith & Wesson. I think it was an automatic, but I don't remember. I really didn't pay too much attention to it.
Mr. JENNER. You actually saw the pistol in the window?
Mr. VOEBEL. Yes. To get back to my story, it was maybe the following week that I was up at his house, and he came out with a glasscutter and a box with this plastic pistol in it, and I think he had a plan as to how he was going to try to get in there and get this pistol.
Mr. JENNER. You mean in the Rampart Street store?
Mr. VOEBEL. Yes. Now, I don't remember if he was planning to use this plastic pistol in the robbery or not, or just to take it and cut the glass and break it out, and get the pistol that way. I don't think he was really sure even then how he wanted to do it, but finally he told me his complete plans and how he was going to cut the glass out of the window and everything, and I didn't know what to tell him, so he said, "Why don't you come over and look at this pistol and tell me what kind it is, and what you think of my plan?" So I said all right, and so we walked over there to this store and we looked at this pistol in the window, and like I said, I don't remember what kind it was.
He said, "Well, what do you think?" and I didn't know what to tell him. I didn't know how to talk him out of it, so then I happened to notice this band around the window, a metal tape that they use for burglar alarms, and I got to working on that idea in the hope that I could talk him out of trying it, and I told him, I said, "Well, I don't think that's a good idea, because if you cut that window, it might crack that tape, and the burglar alarm will go off," and I don't think he believed me, but I told him, "Let's go in the store and look at it from the inside," and so I convinced him that it would be too dangerous to try it, that this was a burglar alarm that would go off, and so anyway, he finally gave up the idea. There had been some jewel robberies on Canal Street and the way they were doing it was cutting a hole in the window, such as Lee planned to do. I remember reading about that, but anyway, he finally changed his mind about trying to rob the store, and that was the end of that.

A cop is shot and killed after stopping one of the assassins for questioning.

The assassination attempt itself is from a window at high vantage point. It has been planned by a professional hit-man who has something to eat while waiting for the kill shot. After the Kennedy ambush, the remains of a meal are found in the"sniper's nest" of the TSBD and DA Wade's first public pronouncement is that the assassination had to be a professional job, weeks or even months in the planning.

The movie, Suddenly came out in 1954, with the alleged Oswald plan to steal a pistol occurring late that year, or in '55.

Out to where the van is waiting
