A rare colour 8mm home movie of a Thanksgiving celebration held at the home of Lee Harvey Oswald's brother Robert in 1962 has sold for $36,100 at RR Auction.

The film runs for just over three minutes and shows Lee Harvey Oswald sat with his family, including his wife Marina. It was shot on November 22, 1962 - exactly one year before the Kennedy assassination.
