Old Faithful Speaks

Old Faithful Speaks is a 35 millimeter nitrate film created between 1933 and 1935 to promote Wyoming tourism. Yellowstone National Park was then (and is now) a world-renowned tourist attraction. The film features what may be the first audio recording of Old Faithful put on film.  It also appears to be exceedingly rare, with only two much-shortened versions known to exist at two other archives.

The American Heritage Center is committed to making audio-visual materials accessible to users of all kinds.  Click here to view other digitized items from the AHC’s collections.
