The Niagara Falls collapse of 1954

When the first tell-tale cracks appeared in the rock at the side of Niagara Falls, Movietone cameramen kept a round-the-clock vigil. Their patience was rewarded by sensational pictures as 185,000 tons of rock crashed down to the bottom of the Falls.

In 1954, announcers still sport the mid-Atlantic English accent. Bully! And Dilly Dilly!
