Here's a lot of 20 regular 8mm movies. These include 14 home movies from a Los Angeles estate, and then six commercially made travelogues. The home movies include wonderful footage of a circus (and this is the only home movie reel in b&w -- all the rest are Kodachrome color) as well as a trip to Disneyland, construction of a house or apartment building, a visit to a completely burned out neighborhood that was hit by a fire storm, playing in the snow, a wedding, a visit to Rome Italy and more. The commercially made movies include a film about the Paricutin volcano in color, and b&w films about Banff, Rome, Fishing, the Rocky Mountains, and the Holy Year.

All in all, some truly fabulous images. See photos, you will see what's in here. Pretty amazing stuff, and it is all in the public domain so you can use it on your website, in documentary films, etc.

See my other auctions for a few other great old films!

This is a public domain film so you can use it as you please, as stock footage or on your website, etc.

Condition. This film is all in very good shape, and has no vinegar odor. See photos to assess film condition. Sold "as is".

More on this:

Parícutin (or Volcán de Parícutin, also accented Paricutín) is a cinder cone volcano in the Mexican state of Michoacán, close to a lava-covered village of the same name. The volcano is unique in the fact that its formation was witnessed from its very inception. It appears on many versions of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. Parícutin is part of the Michoacán-Guanajuato volcanic field, which covers much of west central Mexico.

[edit]History

Three weeks before the actual eruption, rumbling noises that resembled thunder were heard by people near Parícutin village. These were actually deep earthquakes.[2] The volcano began as a fissure in a cornfield owned by a P'urhépecha farmer, Dionisio Pulido, on February 20, 1943. He and his wife witnessed the initial eruption of ash and stones first-hand: "Dionisio Pulido and his wife Paula were burning shrubbery in their cornfield."[2] The volcano grew quickly, reaching five stories tall in just a week, and it could be seen from afar in a month. Much of the volcano's growth occurred during its first year, while it was still in the explosive pyroclastic phase. The nearby villages Parícutin (after which the volcano was named) and San Juan Parangaricutiro were both buried in lava and ash; the residents relocated to vacant land nearby.

At the end of this phase, after roughly one year, the volcano had grown 336 metres (1,102 feet) tall. For the next eight years the volcano continued erupting, although this was dominated by relatively quiet eruptions of lava that scorched the surrounding 25 square kilometres (9.7 square miles; 6,200 acres) of land.[3] The volcano's activity slowly declined during this period until the last six months of the eruption, during which violent and explosive activity was frequent. In 1952, the eruption ended and Parícutin went quiet, attaining a final height of 424 metres (1,391 feet) above the cornfield where it began. The volcano has been quiet since. Like most cinder cones, Parícutin is believed to be a monogenetic volcano, which means that once it has finished erupting, it will never erupt again. Any new eruptions in a monogenetic volcanic field erupt in a new location.

Volcanism is a common part of the Mexican landscape. Parícutin is merely the youngest of more than 1,400 volcanic vents that exist in the Trans-Mexican Volcanic Belt and North America. Three people died as a result of lightning strikes caused by the eruptions, but no deaths were attributed to the lava or asphyxiation.[3]

Shots of the volcano during its active phase were included in 20th Century Fox's film Captain from Castile, released in 1947.




Please note: films cans or shipping containers are not provided with films unless specifically mentioned in the auction. That being said, we often do ship our films in cans when available.

Sometimes people ask for further information about the condition of an item. We try our best to explain condition, but our listing is not intended to exhaustively present all information -- positive or negative -- about an item. Please study the photos and read the listing carefully prior to bidding. For 16mm films, especially home movies, it is common for them to have surface dirt, scratching, and on occasion splices. Some may be in need of new leader, or have another issue. We try our best to point out all the bumps etc., but our descriptions are by no means perfect as many things are subjective. Auctions that indicate "films have not been viewed" means we have not watched the film or made a full assessment of condition. Please be aware, in all cases, films are sold "as is".

People often ask about the "public domain" status of films we sell. While we may point out that a film is believed to be p.d., it is up to the buyer to make a final determination. You can do that by exercising a simple copyright search (please don't email asking how to do this, but look it up for yourself).

California residents MUST pay sales tax.



I always combine shipping costs on multiple items purchased.

International bidders please note: I am sometimes asked if shipping costs are negotiable. They are not. The reason for this is, in the United States due to security restrictions, foreign shipments must be hand-delivered to the post office, and several customs forms filled out. This takes considerable time and effort, and as a result a handling charge is applied. Please keep this in mind when bidding. That being said, I do combine shipping costs for overseas shipments of multiple items purchased.
