I've got some amazing footage to show you! My grandfather had this tape of footage of noted hiker and Disney filmmaker extraordinaire Herb Crisler that he had received from writer and biographer Ruby El Hult, who received it directly from Crisler himself. It was basically unlabeled except for a small note from Ruby stating what was NOT Herb Crisler on the tape (only two short scenes, which have been edited out). After I watched the approximately twenty minutes of footage, I knew this was something special. It's candid moments in the Olympic Mountains with Herb Crisler and assorted others. There's a ton of great moments here, from chasing grouse and filming bear to loading up one of his caches and birdwatching. This footage from the 1940's is a special slice of film we rarely get to see anymore, let alone see something that probably very few people have seen.
