Description by OLDIES.com:

Between 1929 and 1967, Universal-International newsreels were released twice weekly, many narrated by famed announcer Ed Herlihy. It was almost impossible to attend a motion picture that was not preceded by one. Top production crews traversed the nation and the globe to bring the leading stories in politics, entertainment, sports as well as national and global affairs, back to eager audiences.

Highlights from this collection include Charles De Gaul's triumph in Algiers as the rebels surrender to French forces. Sgt. Elvis Presley talks with the press as he prepares to rejoin civilian life. Hundreds of thousands turn out to greet President Eisenhower on his triumphant peace tour of Brazil and Chile. The Lindbergh Trial is revisited on its 25th anniversary. A young unknown fighter named Cassius Clay distinguishes himself at Madison Square Garden. Hollywood producers speak out for freedom of expression as the government reviews its Production Code. The Soviet Union attempts to embarrass America with the capture of U2 pilot Francis Gary Powers. The legendary Bob Cousy leads the Celtics to an NBA Championship at Boston Garden. With a clutch final shot, Arnold Palmer captures the U.S. Open by one stroke.
