Found Film: Rocky Mountains 1930’s Colorado Milner Pass
This is an 8mm home movie film taken in the Rocky Mountains 1930’s. The film starts with a young man feeding a chipmunk on a stone. The film then pans to a scenic view of trees and surrounding mountains. In one shot, you can see a tiny car pass on the road far below. Now, mom and girl feed the chipmunks.
The Milner’s Pass Sign allows identifying the location. Next, we see a cathedral and some city scenes. And, we end with the young girl with Shirley Temple curls talking to an older woman. However, the cuteness level hits a high as the little girl shows off her doll.
How did you digitize this film?
We are losing more history every day. The longer you wait to digitize that home movie of your grandparents at prom or your mom’s first car the more it degrades. I use the Wolverine 8mm and Super 8 Film Reel Converter Scanner to digitize what you see here.
It is easy to set up and operate and stores the files onto an SD card so you can quickly transfer files to your PC. If you have more than 10 films to scan this is definitely going to be cheaper than paying for someone to do it for you, and you’ll have the results quickly about 30 minutes scan time per standard 8mm reel.
