Film and Audio Recordings of G. K. Chesterton

There is very little video footage of Chesterton and apparently only about 25 minutes of audio. Previously I had put up a post with much of this same material: Hear the Voice of the Great G.K. Chesterton. The virtual movies (2nd and 4th links) are fun. This guy takes a photo of Chesterton and makes it look like a movie, in conjunction with actual audio recordings.

At the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester Massachusetts, 9 December 1930

Wonderful to hear the voice of a man who one day, please God, will be declared a saint.

Thank you so much for this post!

You're welcome!

Readers (and viewers) of this post may be interested in purchasing my book of GKC quotations: The Wisdom of Mr. Chesterton.

Same to you. May God bless you a "whole bunch" this year.

It's not "Worcester College" it's the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester, Mass.

Thanks. I'll change that.
