The year 1963 saw the essence of speed and power on the first Saturday in May as the horse Chateaugay won the Kentucky Derby on the track. That summer, the release of Jason and the Argonauts featured the ground-breaking work of the father of stop-motion, Ray Harryhausen on the screen. Last but certainly not least, November brought tragedy as President John F. Kennedy was assassinated while in his motorcade on Elm Street in Dallas, Texas.
