Dodge Bros. movie restored

by David Zatz on

Greg Kwiatkowski, known to many for his restoration of the 200 mph Dodge Charger Daytona, pointed us to the National Film Preservation Foundation’s screening of a Dodge Brothers film from 1917. From a 35mm original film, this video shows how the legendary Dodge Brothers cars were made.


The video was copied at 16 fps from a print preserved by the Academy Film Archive, based on material from the New Zealand Film Archive. It’s an incomplete, silent, 28-minute film. The Foundation wrote that it might be two reels of a three-reel movie distributed to dealerships in 1917, along with projectors. View the film now.
