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:

  • America Launches First Satellite Into Orbit
  • King Of Rock 'n' Roll Elvis Presley Drafted Into The Army
  • Nuclear Submarine 'Nautilus' Travels Under The North Pole
  • 'The Bridge On The River Kwai' Sweeps The 30th Annual Academy Awards
  • Alaska Becomes The 49th State of The Union
  • Vice-President Richard M. Nixon Narrowly Escapes Mob Violence in South America
  • John XXIII Chosen Pope After Death Of Pius XII
  • Charles De Gaulle Elected New Leader Of France
  • 'Hula Hoop' Craze Sweeps Nation
  • Mary Ann Mobley Crowned Miss America

....and much more!!
