A Page From History: Footage From the 1957 Dallas Tornado Documentary

For those who've never seen footage from the deadly 1957 tornado that, as it notes here, "carved a sixteen mile path through Oak Cliff and West Dallas over a time span of about forty minutes," someone's just posted to the YouTubes footage from a doc made about the best-documented twisted in history. The narration accompanying the footage is particularly gripping as it charts the F3 monster's march "through the Trinity River bottoms ... north along Riverside Drive ... south of Brook Hollow Country Club" and on and on and on. --Robert Wilonsky
