Film Library, University of SouthCarolina "In an historic 1980
donation, the University of South Carolina was selected to receive a portion
of the Fox Movietonews newsreel collection by the 20th Century Fox Film
Corporation. The Library owns 11 million feet of Twentieth Century Fox
Movietonews reels and their associated outtakes. Included are all reels from
1919-1934, as well as the complete newsreels and all associated outtakes from
the important World War II period of September 1942 through August 1944. The
Movietonews reels preserve events of national and world significance such as
speeches by Winston Churchill, Benito Mussolini, Franklin Roosevelt, and
Herbert Hoover, and even remarkably long speeches by the reputedly taciturn
Calvin Coolidge. Great events like Lindbergh's transatlantic flight and the
nation's reception of Amelia Earhart's flights are well covered. The crown
jewel of the collection is the December 7, 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor, a
Movietonews exclusive. While Movietonews cameras captured these and many other
important people and events, of equal value are the vignettes of life from the
1920s and 1930s covering entertainment, lifestyles, fashions, farming,
aviation, sports, occupations, women, etc." The Library also has film and
television archives received from South Carolina media companies.
