Synopsis by Perry Seibert

The Timeline series presents newsreels, audio recordings, radio shows, and lists in order to display the historic events that transpired during the given year. The 1939 edition contains performances of songs from The Wizard of Oz, and performances from Louis Prima. A speech by British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain announcing his country is at war with Germany, and a war update from Winston Churchill lend a history lesson to the proceedings. A Lux Theater presentation of It Happened One Night rounds out this entertaining trip down memory lane.
