About this item
"Trapping Kentucky Moonshiners": In 1932 producers Percy Knighton and Joe Lykins sent a camera crew to the back wood hills of Old Kentucky. They document the ways of the mountain people living in a culture a century behind the times. Then, incredibly, the cameras follow shotgun wielding "Government Revenuers" deep into the woods on a dangerous attempt to ferret out and bust an illegal moonshine operation. "Curiosities #11": Producer Walter Futter sent his camera crew around the globe to capture 'bits of life that are hard to believe.' This 1930 installment of Walter Futter's Curiosities shows us a monument to traitor Benedict Arnold, a 'haunted' tractor handle that baffles scientists by exhibiting perpetual motion, a long-winded trumpeter who can sustain a note for seventeen minutes and much more. "The Mystery Crash": In the early 1960s, the National Safety Council produced a series of shorts attempting to teach viewers the techniques of defensive driving. Scores of automobiles piloted by crash-test dummies are wrecked as the cameras roll. We learn that, even with modern bumpers, driving into a tree at 45 mph will not result in a happy ending. "Strange and Unusual Animals": Bizarre creatures from around the globe and the peculiar adaptations their species have developed through untold centuries of evolution are documented. "Paricutin Volcano": In 1945, the U.S. Air Force sent a team of scientists and cameramen to Mexico to study the active Paracutin Volcano. With the aid of a helicopter, they capture incredible footage of the molten crater and the ruined village of San Juan which has been destroyed by a sea of lava.
