Abstract This document is a catalogue of newsreels made during the period 1933-1944. It is marked "Copy No. 6" and described as "uncorrected and revised galley forms" despite each page's being embossed "PROOF." The set appears to be complete, albeit somewhat disorganized in the latter portion, and is divided into three more or less redundant parts, as follows: Part I: Presented in Chronological Order; Part II: List of Persons in Alphabetical Order; Part III: Presented According to Subject with Short Descriptions and Significant Quotations; Appendix. The Appendix consists of a summary and partial transcript of a newsreel made of the 6th Party Congress at Nuremberg ("The Triumph of the Will"). Taken all together (and notwithstanding various inconsistencies omissions concerning certain dates), this document would be extremely helpful as a guide to the relevant newsreels.
