Streaming access to Time, Inc.'s coverage of current events, 1935-1967. These monthly installments of propaganda-flavored “newsreels” combined actual footage with reenactments.
Debuting on American motion picture screens in February 1935, The March of Time newsreels blended confrontational journalism and docudrama, often using actors to stage events that had not been photographed on newsreel cameras. The March of Time expressed the worldview of Time magazine creator Henry Luce, who candidly described the series as “fakery in allegiance to the truth.” The series began with brief segments in the 1930s and eventually grew in length and scope to television programs of in-depth coverage of a single topic. Though extremely popular worldwide, the series eventually ceded viewers to the popularity of television programming, ending movie theater presentations in 1951 and airing its last television segment in 1967.
