World News Reels, mid 1900s: featured new database

World Newsreels Online: 1929–1966 captures full runs of many of the key international newsreels produced during the early twentieth century in this database of moving pictures. Key collections include: Universal Newsreels, Universal Studios, Les Actualites Francaises, Nippon News and The March of Time. Produced from 1929 through the early post-war period, these films provide a unique—and until now largely neglected—resource that will give scholars real insight into how people learned about and lived through the events that occurred during this period of history. Searchable.

This new trial database is brought to you through Western Michigan University Libraries and may become part of the ongoing library holdings.     see right column, bottom link.
