THIS FABULOUS TUESDAY: THE MELBOURNE CUP COLLECTION 1896-1983
But it is more than a race...it is also a festival involving people, politics, fashion, pomp and pageantry.
It is all here from the beginning in 1861 - the joy and the tears, the happiness and the heartbreak...the ultimate racing feature for anyone with even a scant interest in the turf.
This feature starts off with NEWHAVEN winning the 1896 Melbourne Cup and goes until and including the 1983 Melbourne Cup in which KIWI won. Other horses whose names are forever linked to this race are the legendary PHAR LAP (1930) and PETER PAN (1932).
This rare 3+ hour documentary features the following Melbourne Cups from early newsreel to film footage: 1896, 1907, 1915, 1916, 1923, 1924, 1929-1983....an extremely rare collection of 61 races. Please note: The film quality of years 1942 and 1943 is inferior.
