Vintage Film 1941 New Orleans La Mardi Gras On Dvd:
Films of the 1941 New Orleans Mardi Gras on DVD
This rare collection consists of two amateur silent films of the 1941 Mardi Gras in New Orleans. You'll be able to see how the celebration has changed - no beads, no nudity in these films, but there is the same sense of enthusiasm and merriment.
We're fortunate that these films have survived because many early films have either been lost or have physically deteriorated due to the materials they used back then. A fascinating collection!
What sets these films apart is the astounding, beautifully vibrant COLOR!
is approximately 19 minutes

New Orleans Carnival Week, February 22, 1941 - Parade of Nor - Bands, strutting drum majors, colorful floats, costumes, little girls in southern belle costumes, people in hats (lots of hats!), Flags, cars, milling crowds, clowns & jesters...and so much more.
