VJ Day, Honolulu Hawaii, August 14, 1945


65 Years Ago my Dad shot this film along Kalakaua Ave. in Waikiki capturing spontaneous celebrations ... [Full]

VJ Day, Honolulu Hawaii, August 14, 1945 from Richard Sullivan on Vimeo.


JUST THINK HOW THIS YOUNG LADY FELT WHEN SHE DISCOVERED THE VIDEO HER FATHER SHOT. 

Great video of a Spontaneous Victory Parade in Honolulu in 1945. Take a look at this video- absolutely  fabulous! Notice the cars and jeeps, youth. The guys in khaki or gray shirts and black ties are Navy officers or chiefs. The rest are Army or Marine. How young they all were to do what they did. This guy really captured a moment in history! (You can listen to Jimmy Durante singing "I'll be Seeing You" in the background, too) This is a super video of a time past - we need to remember and be THANKFUL. Check out the color fidelity. It's not bad for 1945. Nothing will ever compare with Kodachrome film.

Awesome! At the 2:44 mark there were navy men in khakis and dixie cups. I don't think I have ever seen that uniform combination. I assume they were corpsmen (not corpse-men)assigned to USMC. Anyway, great film and a historical treasure.

Jodi is right about Kodachrome.

I think they are purposefully out of uniform. There are some other shots of SN or POs who are wearing chief or officer khaki combination covers.

Tremendous find, Rodger. I wish I could have been there. That had to have been a mighty party for the ages.
