|Description:||From 1935–1967, American theatergoers and television watchers were witness to Time Inc.’s unique and controversial film series,
The March of Time®.
With its first appearance on American motion picture screens in February 1935, The March of Time® startled journalists, filmmakers, and audiences alike with its controversial topics and unique approach to newsreels. The “issues,” as the newsreels were called, were a blend of confrontational journalism and docudrama, often using actors to stage events that had not been photographed on newsreel cameras. The series began with brief segments in the 1930s and eventually grew in length and scope to television programs of in-depth coverage of a single topic. Though extremely popular worldwide, the series eventually ceded viewers to the popularity of television programming, ending movie theatre presentations in 1951 and airing its last television segment in 1967.
This series is available in online streaming video in a single, cross-searchable collection.
