Today we came across a MovieTone newsreel that documented the collapse of one side of Niagara Falls in 1954. The footage is incredible.

British MovieTone describes the video, which is available on YouTube like this: "When the first tell-tale cracks appeared in the rock at the side of Niagara Falls, Movietone cameramen kept a round-the-clock vigil. Their patience was rewarded by sensational pictures as 185,000 tons of rock crashed down to the bottom of the Falls."
