Lee Harvey Oswald, Voice Coach

Clip: Season 32 Episode 4 | 2m 4s

While living in Minsk during the early 1960s, Lee Harvey Oswald befriended a group of local students interested in learning English. One of the students, Ernst Titovets, made tape recordings of Oswald in order to study his southern accent. He asked him to read passages from Shakespeare, as well as improvise mock dialogues. In one exchange, Oswald improvises the role of a serial killer.
