Who was that bald man?

Interesting thread at JFK Lancer about a man in the Hughes film with the build, approximate looks, and type of clothing of Lee Harvey Oswald. The film was taken after the assassination, and the man is just milling around in the crowd. The difference in appearance from Oswald is that he appears to have a prominent bald spot on the top of his head. Eyewitness Amos Euins testified that he saw a bald spot on the head of the man shooting from the sixth floor of the Texas School Book Depository. It may have been possible for the man with the bald spot to have been on the sixth floor, headed outside in time to appear in the Hughes film, and entered the Rambler in accordance with Roger Craig's statement that he saw Oswald leave in a green Rambler (Craig's credibility is often attacked because his story couldn't be true if Oswald was already on a bus, but Craig may have been fooled by the Oswald double). The man would have been chosen for his resemblance to the patsy Oswald.
