Before the TV was commonplace, people saw the news at their local movie theaters. Newsreels were shown before feature films and at dedicated newsreel movie theaters in larger cities.These vintage Universal Newsreel collections are a way to glimpse special events of the past.
A note on quality: Newsreels were not preserved with the same care as much other old film footage. Although most of the footage is of very good quality, this collection may have portions that are silent or have degraded audio or video.
This collection includes the year of 1944 and has a run time of 3 hours 25 minutes on 2 DVDs.
Some of the news items covered in this collection include: Yanks Clear Greenland of Nazis; The Battle of France; The first motion pictures of the Nazi robot bomb, launched from the French coast and scattering death and destruction over a large section of southern England; Official pictures of the final military preparations for the launching of D-Day; Off the assembly line comes the 5,000th B-24 to go to war; March of Dimes girl with crutches speaks; Jungle War In Burma; The mighty Russian military machine lays siege to Vilna, capital of Lithuania; RAF Lancasters sinks the 45,000 ton Nazi Battlewagon Tirpitz; General Douglas MacArthur, after 19 months of creeping warfare, is seen on the bridge of a plunging flagship, heading into one of the boldest moves of his South Pacific campaign; 5,000 Nazis are taken prisoner; Roosevelt To Run For 4th Term; Third Army blasts Nazi Strongholds; Nazi Border Pierced By Allied Might; B-29s Rule Jap Skies and much more
