1933 film of Persepolis
- The Iranian sequence from the film "The Human Adventure', shot
primarily at Persepolis in 1933, featuring James Henry
Breasted, Ernst Herzfeld, and others has been put on YouTube
by some kind soul.

- Didn't they used to sell it in the Suq on VHS? Did it never make it to DVD?
Breasted's popularity as a lecturer (and in that movie) suggested to me -- the first time I saw it -- that he was the very model of the cinematic absent-minded professor in generations of college movies. --
