The newsreel stories featured national and international news and events, politicians, celebrities, performing animals, sporting events, the latest fashions, fads, trends, and other “oddities.” Sometimes a “local” was also included and shown only in the city where the story was filmed. Local stories might show politicians, parades, football games, beauty contests, or other community activities.
