World Newsreels Online: 1929-1966

Also known as World Newsreels Online: 1929-66, World News Reels Online: 1929-1966, Alexander Street Press, ASP World Newsreels Online

Publisher's description: This Alexander Street Press landmark online collection will include nine newsreel series from four countries -the United States, Japan, France, and the Netherlands. In the years leading up to and during the war, newsreels had an unparalleled political and social impact. During this time period, all feature films worldwide would begin with a newsreel in the audience's native language. Topical coverage was broad, including health, scientific and industrial progress, religion, sports, fashion, politics, meteorology, agriculture, and disasters. In war times, the newsreel became increasingly important as a propaganda tool, with more than one-third of each newsreel devoted to the war.
