A Jamaica Madison Film

January 10

67th Street Library



A 38 minute film offering a new theory behind Judge Crater's infamous vanishing

"…Maurice Bloch did not die naturally in late 1929, as reported; he was murdered. So was the famously absent judge, Joseph Force Crater. And their homicides are linked to F.D.R.'s desire to prevent yet another Tammany corruption scandal that might derail his plans to run for president in 1932.”
