Description by

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:

  • Dwight D. Eisenhower Becomes President Of The United States
  • Russian Dictator Joseph Stalin Passes Away
  • U.S. Tests Its First Atomic Cannon
  • Queen Elizabeth Is Crowned With Traditional Pomp And Ceremony
  • Truce Signed In Korea, P.O.W.'s Returned From Red Captivity
  • Shah Of Iran Survives Coup Attempt
  • Southwest States Experience Horrific Drought
  • Behind The Scenes Of An Actual Nuclear Test
  • Vice-President Richard M. Nixon Visits Far East
  • Tornadoes Slash Across The U.S.
  • Bevy of Beauties Vie For Title Of 'Miss Union Label'
  • President Eisenhower Addresses Church Women On H-Bomb
  • Gaudy Shirts For Virile Men Is Today's New Fashion
  • ....and much more!!
