Harold Chenoweth was Nebraska’s first film producer. He began shooting in the silent-film era. He left behind unbelievable footage: Huskers playing football in the old Memorial Stadium. … Old Civil War veterans marching in a parade, one in a wheelchair. … Babe Ruth holding a chicken, laughing about it with Lou Gehrig. … Buster Keaton in Hollywood, standing alongside Harold. … Footage of his Omaha family. Lots of footage of his family – footage that feels real in each reel. In that family footage, you see a baby boy grow into an ornery little boy.
