Detailed Product Description

A DVD WITH TWO IMMORTAL SPORTS FILMS FROM THE 1950S, THE CONQUEST OF EVEREST AND THE JACKIE ROBINSON STORY!

The illustration is of the original USA movie poster.
 
The Conquest of Everest:
This documentary presents an accounting of the famous first ascent to the top of Mount Everest, that world's tallest peak. Recounted here are the Mallory expedition from the 1920's and their famed attempt to climb the peak aw well as the 1952 successful expedition headed by John Hunt and Edmund Hillary. Using footage filmed during the ascent and interviews with members of the party, this documentary offers great insight in to the minds and operation of these famous explorers. (1953, 78 Minutes). The actual film makers were Tom Stobart and George Lowe. The vintage 1920s footage is by John Noel.

The Jackie Robinson Story:

The life of Jackie Robinson from his college days to the military and then his becoming the first African American professional baseball player in the modern era is covered in this feature. Robinson portrays himself in this feature that allows you insight into the psyche of Robinson, Branch Rickey and his fellow Brooklyn Dodgers teammates. This feature shows the pressure that was placed upon Robinson by the public and by some of his fellow players due to the racism that was common during that era. (1950, 76 Minutes)

(It took me a while to understand why a film company would put these two films together. Actually they have a lot in common.)

Both are inspiring, true sports stories.

Both happened in the 1950s.

Both have the actual participants, not actors.

And here is the secret reason: Both are out of copyright!
