  • [Other] Incredible home movies from Disneyland 1956! Incredible footage.

    Hello Friends.
    This may have been discussed a while back although for anyone interested in seeing a glimpse of true Disneyland from a guests perspective in 1956, you have got to check out these two film reels that were posted by Jeff Altman on Vimeo. Jeff's grandfather shot the film in 16mm back in 1956, in the past few years, Jeff has digitized the video and posted them onto Vimeo. It is a true treat to be-able to watch these treasures, I am sure you will agree.

    This is very very high quality film!!!! Not the usual "home movie from the 1950's look"

        The quality is incredible. Jeff is training to be a color corrector and you can really tell by what a fantastic transfer he was able to accomplish with these clips. I can watch the films over and over and look for little things captured, the types of clothes people are wearing, trying to imagine what things were like back then. It really is awesome, there must be lots more of this stuff out there, let's find as much as possible and post them here!

          Those were really great.


          It's 16 miles to Disneyland, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark, and we're wearing sunglasses.

          Hit It.

            Those are amazing! I can't believe the quality, very cool. I think it's neat you can really get a sense of how busy Disneyland is from all the skyway shots. When you are down on the ground you are only aware of what's immediately around you, I sure wish we had the skyway still.
            Yaye!

              Truly excellent! Definitely a superb transfer, and the footage itself is a lot of fun to watch. Amazing how for all its early shortcomings, Disneyland had so much heart from the get-go.

                I want to see more!!! I have been scouring the web and have found a few other home films but none near the quality of these. I reckon not many folks shot home films in 16mm nor transfered the long lost footage on a high quality multi million dollar film scanner with Divinci color
                correction! Truly a treasure!

                      1956; That's the year I was born.

                      Absolutely amazing how much the park has changed, as well as how much of it is still the same.

                      Some of the original stuff is indeed timeless, and I hope it remains forever.

                          wow, I've always wondered what the 50's looked like, and now I know it looks a whole lot better that today!!

                              I think the most amazing thing is how much Disneyland still looks like that today. Most of those places in that movie, you can still visit and see.
