Magic Yellowstone: Historic 1920's Motion Picture Of Yellowstone

First Aired Monday, December 07, 1998

This recently restored half-hour black and white moving picture was filmed by Jack Ellis Haynes to promote tourism for the Northern Pacific Railroad in the 1920s. Catch a glimpse of the time when the venturesome tourists rode the Northern Pacific's steam engine down Paradise Valley, toured Yellowstone's unpaved roads in the first motorized open-air tourist buses and even fed the bears. An original score of period piano and organ music accompanies this film from a bygone era.
