Did anyone watch "Fantastic Tulsa Films" last night on OETA? I was glued to the TV the whole hour. It was really great stuff! Showed all of the parades that the city used to have and how everyone would come line the streets, talked about the movie "Tulsa" that premiered downtown and drew pretty much the whole city down for the parade, the old sports venues, trolleys, shopping days, and even color footage of all the neon signs that were popular downtown. It was a really great show, and they talked about the possibility of more, so I hope we do see more.

Channel 6 has aired it several times over the last couple of weeks.   It's also available (still?) on DVD at Arvest bank branches.

Also available at Quik Trip and Steve's Bookstore.  (Steve's carries just about anything related to Tulsa/Tulsa history, including more obscure books that you probably won't find elsewhere.)

I haven't bought the 2nd one yet but I am watching the first right now. Very depressing to see how much has been torn down downtown. I would have killed to see those old theaters. [Sad]

Jack Frank does an excellent job in assembling and editing these old film clips.  While it is sad to see how much Tulsa has lost, I try to keep in mind that these images were taken not so long ago.  Tulsa is a relatively young city, and we a chance to create a great urban core once again if we choose.

I'm glad Jack Frank Productions decided to make the films available on DVD.  I love the ability to pause the movies and explore detail of the downtown street scenes frame by frame.
