A veritable treasure trove of old footage
The Library of Congress has unveiled its new National Screening Room , a free collection of digitized historical films, commercials, newsreels and other clips from the 1800s until the end of the 20th century and capture a broad range of American life. Notable films include home movies by the songwriters George and Ira Gershwin; issues of the "All-American News," a newsreel intended for black audiences in the mid-20th century; and a selection of instructional films about mental health from the 1950s.
