compiled by Dr. Steven Schoenherr

Summary
In the age before television, people saw the news every week in their neighborhood movie theater, in the newsreels that were shown with every feature film. This DVD contains a selection of newsreels made by Universal International News, compiled by Professor Steven Schoenherr for history classes at the University of San Diego. These visual historical documents have been reproduced from reference cassettes at the National Archives in College Park MD. In living black-and-white, they offer a fascinating and unique view of an era when motion pictures defined our culture.
