Early Mardi Gras Films on DVD
Mardi Gras - the must attend
party of the year. Take a trip back into Mardi Gras history with this
compilation of two Mardi Gras parade films from 1941 - the Parade of Krewe
of Nor and the Parade of Krewe of Rex. This is the last Mardi Gras before
the United States entered World War II so you could consider it one final
hurrah before the dark days of war. The footage of both films is spectacular
and shows the color and delights of Mardi Gras in simpler times. This
is a must have for Mardi Gras enthusiasts. Below you will find more details
about each of the two films.
New Orleans Carnival Week, February 22, 1941
This is the Parade of Krewe of Nor (children) at the 1941 Mardi
Gras. It shows all the colorful costumes people wore during the
event, a large number of colorful and elegant floats, parade entertainments
and bead throwing (which was much more subdued in that era than
it is in modern times.) The footage is quite good and is truly a
special glimpse into the past of Mardi Gras.
Audio/Visual: silent, color
Run time: 9:25
Parade of Krewe of Rex, New Orleans, February 25, 1941
This is the Parade of Krewe of Rex on Fat Tuesday at the 1941 Mardi
Gras. One of the nice features you will pick up from watching this
film is the level of participation from the audience. They are quite
actively involved in the celebrations, not observers at the sideline
as is common today.
Audio/Visual: Si, Color
Run time: 9:30
