A Trip Down Memory Lane

Top of page

From Arthur Lipsett (Very Nice, Very Nice, 21-87,) another incisive look at human might, majesty, and mayhem, compiled from some peculiar newsreel items of the last fifty years. The filmmaker calls this a time capsule, but his arrangement of pictures makes it almost explosive. There are hundreds of items, once front-page stuff, but all wryly grotesque when seen in this reshuffle of the past.

1965, 12 min 40 s
