New from the UCLA Film & Television Archive: Hearst Newsreel Collection

New from the UCLA Film & Television Archive: The Web site does not use an encryption certificate and I could not find any announcements anywhere but Facebook and Twitter, so I was not hopeful. Sounds like a great collection, though. From the front page: “In 1981, the Hearst Corporation donated its newsreel collection to the University of California. In cooperation with the UCLA Film & Television Archive, the Packard Humanities Institute is developing this website as part of a joint project to make the Hearst newsreel collection more easily accessible to the public.” Newsreels cover 1929-1967. I just watched Elizabeth Arden talk about the return of the natural waistline in 1930. Ma’am, mine never went anywhere.
