Classic 1930s film footage in documentary

Postby TFA » Tue Feb 26, 2019 2:25 am

Has anyone else seen the documentary from the Smithsonian channel titled "America in Color"?

In the latest episode there's a several minute long segment about the gangster of the 1930s and their slot machine operation. We all know the story and have seen the pictures of La Guardia and his goons smashing piles of slot machines. That's (very) old news. However this is all remastered footage, with added sound and in color. Highly recommended.

Wow! Lavender paint job on the Futurity? Roman Head slots have an interesting finish as well.
