Top of page

A Little Fellow from Gambo: The Joey Smallwood Story (1970) This is a lively portrait of Joseph Roberts Smallwood (or "Joey" as he was known), a Father of Confederation, first premier of Newfoundland and one of Canada's most colourful political figures. Shot during two-and-a-half active months that included a stormy Liberal leadership convention, the video reveals a man who perhaps not even his close associates and adversaries understood.

The Tenth Frontier is a 12-part series highlighting 50 years of NFB films from and about Newfoundland and Labrador. From touching personal stories, to portraits of public figures, to windows on ways of life now past, The Tenth Frontier is a treasure of historical films and fresh perspectives.
