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 1945 and has a run time of 5 hours 13 minutes on 3 DVDs.
Some of the news items covered in this collection include: Mussolini Executed; Truman Announces Germany's surrender; First Pictures of Japanese Surrender; Dachau trial of Strasser; Jet Planes in Action; AFL's William Green speaks at Washington DC conference; Britain's Wall of Fire - planned to protect British coastline in case of invasion; Miracle of radar revealed; USS Oriskany launched, an Essex-class carrier, named after Revolutionary war battle; The Capture of Manila; The U. S. Fifth Fleet takes positions several hundred miles off Tokyo; An estimated 2,000,000 Southern Californians wildly cheer General George S. Patton, Jr., and Lt. General Jimmy Doolittle as they pass in triumphant parade; Nuremberg War Crimes Trials Open; FDR Pledges Lasting Peace At Inaugural; Pres. Truman Warns Japs To Give Up; and much more
