Title: Fox Movietone News Collection
Author: Moving Image Research Collections
Abstract: Thousands of videos from the Fox Movietone News Collection available for free, streaming access online. About the Fox Movietone collection: The collection contains seven million feet of nitrate motion picture film and four million feet of safety motion picture film documenting the national and global politics and culture from 1919 through 1934 and from September 1942 through August 1944. Paper holdings provide detailed notes generated by original camera crews as well as ephemera related to individual stories. Within the collection are elements from two distinct newsreel products. One is a silent newsreel, Fox News, which ran from 1919 into 1930. The other is the original sound newsreel, Fox Movietone News, which ran from 1927 through 1963. The majority of films in the collection were not used by the Fox corporation as part of a released newsreel. The collection does contain over 200 released newsreels from 1942 to 1944.
