See Mother Nature at her fiery fiercest in this series of seismic short subjects:<P><B><I>Eruption Of Kilauea:</B></I> When Kilauea erupted in 1959, Hawaii trembled and daring cameramen rushed to record the devastation. Lava fountains shot up to ten times the height of Niagara Falls; lava rivers burned a path of destruction to the ocean's edge. This film also reveals that the most fertile lands exist only because of volcanic fury. <P><B><I> The Land Beneath The Sea:</B></I> Dive into the world below the water for a geologic history lesson: This short explains how lava formed some of the hills and mountains on the ocean floor, and reveals that Pacific islands are visible evidence of innumerable volcanic eruptions.<P><B><I>Eruption Of Mt. Vesuvius!:</B></I> Mt. Vesuvius, which erupted and destroyed Pompeii in 79 A.D., put on a 1944 encore that was captured by newsreel cameras. Flame, smoke and molten rock spewed out of its crater with monstrous force. House fires and building collapses in neighboring villages -- some of them many miles away -- were also caught on film.
