Remember when we were kids in Boulder City in the 40s & 50s they used to show THIS movie at the Visitor Center? We would sneak in and watch it because it was nice and cool in the theater. Just click on this link to watch it again after all these years.

Here is a great PBS Special about Boulder City and Boulder Dam, with lots of pics and quotes from some BC "old timers".  Watch the video by waiting a few seconds then click on screen.  Later you can come back to review the chapters of the program and the dialog.

There is a great historical story about art centered around Boulder Dam.  There is link below to a brief plea shown on PBS to find nine of the eleven watercolors done in 1931-34 by Stanley Wood.    I have found copies of the the eleven drawings from Fortune Magazine,  for sale on eBay, and have copied them.   They are in a section of the Reunion Photos - 2011.   Jim Widner
