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:

  • Soviets Launch First Space Satellite, Sputnik 1
  • President Dwight D. Eisenhower Suffers Stroke
  • New York Yankees vs. Milwaukee Braves In 1957 World Series
  • 12 Perish As Floods Sweep Four States
  • The New Nation Of Ghana Is Born
  • 92,000 Fill Yankee Stadium For Evangelist Billy Graham
  • 51 Killed In Wake Of Midwest Tornados
  • Princess Caroline Of Monaco Is Baptized
  • Jimmy Stewart Promotes Latest Film "Night Passage"
  • Marilyn Van Derbur Crowned Miss America

....and much more!!
