"Tornado!", 1960's Documentary

When I was in junior high and high school, the Weather Bureau (now National Weather Service) encouraged schools to play their documentary film, "Tornado!"

It is really hokey, but it does depict the National Severe Storms Forecast Center that I frequently visited growing up in Kansas City. The late Hilmer Crumrine "stars" as the forecaster who loosens his tie as the tornadoes become more and more likely.

I ran across it this morning and got a kick out of seeing it again (for the first time in 20+ years) and thought you might, too.  Here is Part 1. And, Part 2.
