June 14th, 2011

Hand cranked newsreel footage (silent) of the Knickerbocker Theater disaster during the worst snowstorm in Washington DC history, January 27-28, 1922. I used this footage in my documentary TWENTY FIVE CENTS BEFORE NOON which aired on WETA in 1990 After the newsreel (shown twice), I include stills from the Library of Congress prints and photographs division. For more information about the snowstorm, and the tragic collapse of the Knickerbocker Theater roof which killed 98 persons, here are some links Thanks, Jeff Krulik
