The grand welcoming celebration received by the famous actor and director José Ferrer, upon returning to his home island of Puerto Rico after his Oscar win for Best Actor. His depiction of Cyrano de Bergerac in the theatrical play of the same name won him the first Tony Award for Best Actor in a Play in 1947. He then reprised the role in the 1950 movie adaptation and earned the Academy Award, going down in history as the first Hispanic and Puerto Rican actor to earn this high achievement.
Fascinating 1950s news footage of the famous Puerto Rican thoroughbred Camarero, the first triple-crown horse in the history of the island, and a key figure in ushering a new era for the sport.
Children in Puerto Rico had the chance to play in the snow during the holiday season on Three Kings Day in the early 1950s. This short archival footage takes us back to the momentous occasion when actual snow was flown in all they way from Vermont as a gift by Eastern Airlines.
