CDCR Time Capsule (video) 1937: Filmmaking pioneer focuses camera on San Quentin

In the video archives at CDCR headquarters, exterior and interior shots of San Quentin were recently uncovered. While there is no date on the footage, some clues appear throughout such as the cars in the background, the style of dress of those in the film and the lack of a bridge over the bay. The parking lot below the prison is also absent. It took some sleuthing, but the raw footage comes from the 1937 film “San Quentin” and was shot by film pioneer Hans Koenekamp.
