Fox Movietone news and newsreels

I will probably have a more comprehensive post later in the week, but for now here are several interesting Fox Movietone Newsreels and news shorts:

Thomas Edison dies; with clips from an interview of Edison on his 84th birthday.

The first sound recording of Gandhi. The sound is rough here, but there is a transcript on the original YouTube page.

Shaw swims, discusses the U.S. Constitution, etc.

The 1932 Presidential campaign; the death of Rin Tin Tin

And now for something completely different.
