Because everything is better in slow motion

People in this thread are confusing 40s tape with NFL film edits from the 70s.

Pretty sure OP is asking about old old 40s film

Frame rate for 16mm and 35mm live action film has been 24 frames per second since the late 20's early 30's. The Sobel's shot mostly slo-mo at 60 fps on 16mm and 35mm cameras.

Standard live cameras of that era weren’t capable of doing good slow motion like they can now. Those old NFL Film videos were shot with a special camera so it was quite a novelty to see back then.

He said slow motion not sped-up motion.

Modern players will watch old reels of like Red Grange and say...wait, he looks like he's going way too fast...this looks sped-up.

I’ve thought this too. Slow motion is nice sometimes but once in a while it’d be cool to see the actual speed of the game

Two different ways of shooting the same event.

A) The actual speed of the game - Real time of Willie Brown's Int

B) And then NFL films made a regular INT iconic... LINK

They older game films were shot on cameras with a lower frames per second than what is standard today

If this had any effect, we'd see highlights in fast motion.

Think about what you are saying.

I liked the music. “Ramblin Man From Gramblin” and “The Magnificent Eleven”

Very nostalgic
