4128Re: Don Blanding film clip on YouTube
- Feb 1, 2007Keith, that's a neat find! On dial-up, the video hesitates about
every 5 seconds, but I was finally able to get a complete run. Who is
Of course, I have heard DB's voice before, but seeing him "live" just
gives me goosebumps!
Is this video related to any of the travelogues that DB made in the
1930s? I know that 3 of the films have been transferred to VHS and
are in the Bishop Museum's collection. The films are narrated by DB;
not sure if he actually appears on screen. They run from 10 minutes
to about 38 minutes.
In 1934, DB was planning to return to Honolulu for Lei Day ... but
cancelled the trip because he was "doing films in Hollywood."
I wonder if there's any chance of obtaining copies of the
travelogues ... for a price, of course.
