Movie Fact: Fletcher Prouty in Oliver Stone's 'JFK'.|
Donald Sutherland was cast as the Air Force Col. 'X' in Oliver Stone's film 'JFK'. The Col. 'X' character was, in fact, modeled after Col. Prouty. Fletcher was a consultant during the making of Stone's award winning film, so it is not surprising that the conversations between the lead character, Jim Garrison, and Col. 'X' in the movie are based on fact.
Col. Prouty maintained a friendship with the real Jim Garrison until Mr. Garrison's recent passing away.
