The Great Falls Story: A Tribute to 125 Years (DVD)
By The History Museum, Great Falls, Montana. DVD, 57 minutes.
The Great Falls Story is the history of everyday life in what was Montana's largest city.
Great Falls started as an ambitious dream to make north central Montana an industrial empire. The dream included parks, buildings, stores and an opera house to rival anywhere.
The story is told through hundreds of photos, rare film from nearly a century ago, and firsthand stories. It includes accounts from the late Walter Breuning, "World's Oldest Man" and "Captain Dynamite", a crowd favorite known for blowing himself up at Great Falls ball games.
Emmy Award-winning network news correspondent Craig Wirth returns home to Great Falls to join longtime Montana broadcaster Norma Ashby to produce this Montana tribute.
DVD, 57 minutes.
