About the Video

For this video, I used public domain footage from the Internet Archive’s 35mm Stock Footage Collection). I was thinking of using public domain footage in most of my videos, but I started getting copyright claims on this video, so I scrapped that idea. The clips used in this video are from:

The original videos are:

  • Airplane Crashes and Flooding River Special Effects
  • Hotrods (race car footage)
  • LaGuardia Airport Scenes, Lion and Leopard (lion and crocodile footage)
  • Early Films 3 (ca. 1900s) (Aladdin), Probably produced by Pathe Freres
  • Nightclub and Dancers (ca. 1930s)
  • Soundies (Three Winter Sisters, Pansy the Horse, Reg Kehoe and his Marimba Queens)
  • [Early Films 2] (ca. 1900s) The fighting camera scene
