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:

  • President Kennedy Announces Arms Blockade of Cuba
  • Former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt Passes Away
  • John Glenn Becomes First American To Orbit Earth
  • "West Side Story" Sweeps 34th Annual Academy Awards
  • United States Launches Telstar Satellite
  • Horrific Landslide Wipes Out Peruvian Villages
  • Wilt Chamberlain Sets New Record of 100 Points In A Game
  • Tensions Rise As Algerian War Continues
  • JFK Throws Out First Baseball At Newly-Opened D.C. Stadium
  • Winter Storm Paralyzes East Coast
  • Tony Randall Arrives in Miami Beach For Premiere of His New Hit "Lover Come Back"
  • ...and much more!!!
