The University of Pennsylvania Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology has put
675 reels of archival 16 mm film online
via the Internet Archive. Most of the film is unedited, and stems either from Museum research, or was donated by interested amateurs. Much of it is silent, reflecting the technology of the day. One highlight are the
four surviving reels
of the long-running TV show 'What in the World" (look for the episode starring Vincent Price), but the archive is full of other hidden gems, such as the
1950s archaeological expedition to Tikal
, a 1940 film "
A 1000 Mile Road Trip Across America
Glimpses of Life Among the Catawba and Cherokee Indians of the Carolinas (1927).
The films are downloadable in various formats, including MPEG2, Ogg Video, and 512Kb MPEG4. Happy browsing!

Bono's commencement address to U.Penn.
"The world is more malleable than you think and it's waiting for you to hammer it into shape.... That's what this degree of yours is, a blunt instrument. So go forth and build something with it."
