'The Black Dahlia' Movie Promoted With Old School Newsreel


Just breaking on YouTube is this classic newsreel-style video promoting the upcoming movie, The Black Dahlia, about 22 year-old actress Elizabeth Short who was found dead on a vacant Hollywood lot in January of 1947. While many people confessed to the crime, it was never solved. Shot newsreel-style, the video chronicles the many crimes that occurred in that city from the Chinese Massacre of 1871 to the LA Times Bombing to the Parker Kidnapping to the "Zoot Suit" Riots and more. The work was created by Exopolis.

In reading the comments at YouTube, I agree that the voiceover could be improved. I am old enough to remember news reels shown in the movies, so I wonder if that is my bias. Still, the concept is right on target, I think.
