Historical \"ephemeral films\" archive - free .avi downloads.

Archive.org/movies
This site is just plain cool, it\'s a quirky historical archive of 
short, old movies and films (ads, educational, propaganda films, and others)
available in two different formats: .mpg (mpeg-2) and DivX
.avi\'s (mpeg-4).

From Archive.org\'s description:
\"This collection contains movies that the Prelinger
Archives
has digitized (about 956 now online) and donated to the Internet
Archive. The films focus mainly on everyday life, culture, industry, and
institutions in North America in the 20th century.\"

Browse through the looong title
list
or read \"About
This Collection
\". I especially enjoyed the article
by Bart Eisenberg where
the archivist, Rick Prelinger, \"calls himself a \"media archaeologist.\"
