Revealing historic news item.
22 March 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Well let's see how we go doing ten lines on a two minute newsreel item lopped out of a Hearst Metronome reel, but you can tell that from the credits can't you?

The piece is included in the Treasures of the West DVD set with the intention of contrast with other items like their DESCHUTES DRIFTWOOD but really the telling comparison is with features like GABRIEL OVER the WHITE HOUSE and The GRAPES OF WRATH with their contrasting attitudes to the social divide.

Good actuality transport images and intriguing commentary.

There we are at length after all.
