Editorial Reviews

Experience the American Journey through our country's visual heritage in this historical recording provided by the National Archives of the United States. This newsreel film sponsored by the U.S. Marine Corps and hosted and narrated by Dennis James, contains three segments. The first profiles the exploits of Mildred Ella ("Babe") Didrikson Zaharias, a woman considered the greatest woman's athlete of her time. The second segment on the "Prohibition Era" contains footage of Charleston dancers, famous speakeasy operator "Texas" Guinan, singer Al Jolson, President Warren G. Harding as he played a tuba, President Calvin Coolidge as he wore an Indian headress, Eugene Debs as he left prison, Al Capone, and Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti. Lastly, comes a humorous feature on the "crazy cars" of the 1920s. The newsreel segments are interspersed with two Marine Corps recruitment spots. This historical recording from the National Archives may contain variations in audio and video quality based on the limitations of the original source material. The content summary for this DVD is adapted from an historical description provided by the government agency or donor at the time of production release.
