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 years of 1942 and 1943 and has a run time of 51 minutes.
Some of the news items covered in this collection include: On location with Loretta Young filming the movie "China"; Amazing pictures of the great air-sea battle between an Allied Convoy to Malta, and Axis forces; Modern 'Doughboys' doff their usual khaki and don, of all things, wome's clothes to star in their own version of 'Swing Fever.'; The Lambeth Walk!" - humorous editing of German newsreels to make fun of Hitler and the Nazis; Huge United Nations convoy is attacked by Nazi's bombers off Scandinavian north capes; F.D.R. Starts $9,000,000,000 'V' Loan Driv; President Roosevelt advises the Fuehrer to surrender now or face the calamitous ruin which has just been planned for him; Invincible Russia triumphant over the enemy as the Nazis are steadily repulsed and forced to retreat from every front; Pres. Roosevelt cites Italy's capitulation as a victory for the Italian people, as well as for Gen. Eisenhower, as he officially opens the Third War Loan Drive; and much more
