Film Memories Preserved


HARLEM GLOBETROTTERS - Here are clips from two different Globetrotters films. The first film is of the Globetrotters performing on the aircraft carrier USS Enterprise in 1966 (color). The second clip is of the Globetrotter Magic Circle from a documentary about their trip to Europe (black and white).


EVEL KNIEVEL - This short clip of the motorcycle daredevil is from the early 1980's. Famous for his ramp-to-ramp jumps and attempted Snake River Canyon jump, he also made personal appearances like in this Montana parade.


PRESIDENT EISENHOWER - Though not great quality, this film is of President Dwight D. Eisenhower in a motorcade. The film was shot near Lafayette, Indiana in 1962. It's amazing to see how close people were to the president. The person shooting the film appears to be within feet of him!
