Mt. Shasta has been the subject of a wide array of videorecordings, motion pictures, slide presentations, and sound recordings. Several of the entries in this section contain interviews with prominent local personalities, or contain historical information not found anywhere else. Many of the entries are about the mystic reputation of the mountain. Other entries feature tourism, railroads, the forests, commerce, etc., all with Mt. Shasta featured at some point. Two of the more widely distributed productions were the 1986 The Californians advertising spots produced by the California Department of Commerce, and the 1992 Rescue 911-The Box Canyon Incident produced by CBS News. Not all of the entries have been located; for example, neither the 1935 Lemuria: The Lost Continent, nor the 1919 The Brute Breaker motion pictures have been seen. Entries which are on reserve at the College of the Siskiyous Library have a COS Media Center number following the entry, e.g., [COS Media Center #VC-67-007].

[MS976].          Mount Shasta: Cathedral of Wildness. videorecording. Berditschevsky, Michelle. producer/director. Mt. Shasta, Calif.: 1991. 29 minutes One videocassette, VHS format     Professionally produced video on the need to preserve Mt. Shasta as an historical site of great importance. Consists of interviews taking place outdoors with nationally and regionally well-known figures including: David Brower, founder of Friends of the Earth; Ralph Metzner, founder of Green Earth Foundation; Harold Gilliam, Sierra Club historian; Peter Berg, founder of the Planet Drum Foundation; Gary Zukav, best-selling author; and Tai Situpe Rinpoche, a Tibetian religious figure with a particular concern for Mt. Shasta.
      Regionally important persons interviewed include: Vern Johnson, California Council of Tribal Governments; Flora Jones, Wintu religious leader; Philip Rhodes, mountaineer and Mt. Shasta's glacier expert; Charlie Thom, Sr., Karok Indian medicine man; Floyd Buckskin, Indian leader, Mary Carplan, Shasta Nation spokesperson.
      The interviews and statements present a wide range of viewpoints, though none of them pro-development. As an example of Indian concern for Mt. Shasta, Flora Jones says in so many words that: "We don't tear down your churches." Indian leader Vern Johnson says of a major ski development on Mt. Shasta that: "When something happens like this, on the surface it looks good, it looks like its going to provide jobs, there's going to be recreation and a lot of fun, but psychologically it provides bitterness to people, not only for the Indians but non-Indians who don't want the development."
      Gary Zukav is quoted as saying of the tensions between conservationists and utilitarians that: "There are no villains, often people are frightened, they are frightened of losing their jobs..." He explains what is happening at Mt. Shasta is not just a conflict over land use, but rather the natural outcome of a whole new way to view the earth, a view which highly values the naturalness and integrity of "Cathedrals of the Wildness" over the man-made attractions of development.     29.

[MS975].          Harmonic Convergence. videorecording. Goehring, Ken and Roesch, Michael. producers. Weed, Calif.: 1987. 50 minutes One videocassette, VHS format. [COS Media Center #VC-67-010]     Consists of videotaped interviews, Aug. 15-17, 1987, during the 'Harmonic Convergence' at Mt. Shasta. During the period of the 'convergence,' the many planets of the solar system came into a nearly linear and highly unusual configuration. The world, it was thought, was in for a positive change if enough people could gather together at various places on the planet and attempt to put forth good individual and communal harmony. Mt. Shasta, a 'sacred' place, drew participants from far and wide. Among those interviewed were persons from Germany, New Zealand, Tibet, and Spain. Several of the interviewees explained that they were 'channels' for higher 'entities,' and several actual 'channelings' were videotaped, including that of a "Saint John the Baptist." In Mt. Shasta City a malfunctioning television set produced an angel-like image on its screen and attracted hundreds of Convergence people.
      The people interviewed represent a cross-section of the 1980s 'New Age' perspectives. Several of the more believable accounts of experiences at the Mt. Shasta Harmonic Convergence came from those who explained that they come to the mountain every year just to get away from city influences. Common to their expressed philosophy was the need to dissolve fears and social conditioning in order to feel an inner experience of 'love.' The precondition factor in this 'love' experience was that of a safe feeling with one's neighbors and one's environment.     29. Audiovisual Materials.  [MS975].

[MS985].          Shasta Daylight: 4449's Finest Video Hour! videorecording. Goodhart Productions. 1991. 70 minutes One videocassette, VHS format. [COS Media Center #VC-67-011]     The Shasta Daylight #4449 is one of the remaining steam engines which in past times powered trains on the "Shasta Route" from Portland to San Francisco. In the 1950s diesel engines had all but replaced steam engines. The 4449 is a restored Southern Pacific Railroad Company engine popular with train buffs, and its use in 1991 for a special run along the entire Shasta route generated widespread public interest. The videorecording documents this special event.
      Shortly after the much beloved engine returned to Portland, a Southern Pacific freight tank-car filled with toxic pesticide fell into the upper Sacramento River just south of Mt. Shasta. This spill, called the Cantara Loop toxic spill of July 14, 1991, caused enormous negative publicity for Southern Pacific. In an effort to improve public relations, the Shasta Daylight #4449 was sent south to Redding, and a weekend series of excursion trips between Redding and Mt. Shasta City were run, to the delight of hundreds of people.  This second event is also documented in this videorecording.     29. Audiovisual Materials.  [MS985].

[MS989].          Great Western Savings and Loan. videorecording. Great Western Savings and Loan. producer. 1986. 1 minute One videocassette, VHS format. [COS Media Center #VC-67-01]     TV Commercial. Film star Dennis Weaver is shown riding a horse in the snow along the slopes of Mt. Shasta. Many views of Mt. Shasta. The concept of the commercial is to compare the size and strength of Great Western Bank with the size and strength of Mt. Shasta. Weaver says of the bank: "For shear size and strength, it sure stands out."     29. Audiovisual Materials.  [MS989].

[MS1297].          Baby Blue Marine. motion picture. Hancock, John. director. Hancock, John. director. New York: 1976. The movie 'Baby Blue Marine' was filmed in part in the Mt. Shasta region. The screenplay was written by Stanford Whitmore; the novel of the same name, which uses photographs of Mt. Shasta to illustrate the text, appears to have been written after the screenplay. The stars were Jan-Michael Vincent and Glynnis O'Connor. Set in 1943, the plot revolves around a World War Two internment camp for Japanese Americans. The legacy of the Tule Lake internment camp drew the movie-makers to the Mt. Shasta region.     29. Audiovisual Materials/40. Find List.  MS1297].

[MS981].          Life and Times of Joaquin Miller. videorecording. Miesse, William C. lecturer. 1990. 2 hours One videocassette, VHS format. Unpublished archival video tape.     Consists of a two hour annotated slide show based upon Joaquin Miller's novels, poems, diaries, plays, etc. Shows slides of the materials themselves as well as slides of the places and people who were important to Miller during the four years he lived in Siskiyou and Shasta Counties, from 1854 to 1857. Miller and Mt. Shasta were nearly inseparable in the public mind for many years after the publication in 1873 of his Life Amongst the Modocs: Unwritten History. Material is taken from hundreds of published and unpublished sources. Miller is portrayed as a man in need of re-interpretation by modern critics. Ahead of his time, he was a man a man who lived with an Indian tribe at the foot of Mt. Shasta, fathered an Indian daughter, defended Indian Rights, founded homes for the homeless, established California's first Arbor Day, planted thousands of trees in the S.F. Bay region, organized a spiritual commune, and taught that Silence and Nature were the greatest teachers.     29. Audiovisual Materials.  [MS981].

[MS996].          Miesse, William C.Wilkes Expedition of 1838-1842, Lecture Oct. 6, 1991audiorecordingWeed, Calif.College of the Siskiyous1991Two audiocassettes, 1 1/2 hoursAudio portion of a slide show presented by W. C. Miesse, at the College of the Siskiyous, Oct. 6, 1991, in honor of the 150th anniversary of the October, 1841, arrival of the first scientists and artists at Mt. Shasta. The 1841 group was led by Lieutenant George Foster Emmons, under orders from  Charles Wilkes. The group of about 40 people skirted the western base of Mt. Shasta on Oct. 3 and 4 of 1841.
      The lecture presented the background and the particulars of the Sept.-Oct. 1841 overland expedition, which was an important part of the United States Exploring Expedition of 1838-1842. The U.S. Ex. Ex., as it was called, led by Charles Wilkes, was America's first circumnavigation of the globe. Some of America's best civilian scientists and artists (the 'Scientifics') accompanied the naval expedition. After a wreck of one of the main ships off the mouth of Columbia River, Wilkes decided to send most of the scientific group overland to investigate the overland route between Oregon and California.
      The group began the scientific and artistic history of Mt. Shasta. For Mt. Shasta, it meant the arrival of the first geologist (the great James Dwight Dana), the first botanists (William D. Brackenridge and William Rich), the first mammalogist (Titian Peale), the first artist (Alfred T. Agate), and the first professional map maker (Lieut. Henry Eld); they each kept a detailed journal of the day by day events.
      It also appears that this Wilkes-Emmons overland expedition of 1841 was responsible for the transfer of the name "Mt. Shasty" from its previous location as a name for present Mt. McLoughlin, to present Mt. Shasta. The journals and maps from their travels offer clues to their reasons for 'misnaming' the mountain.
      The Wilkes Expedition's mammoth collections became the foundation collection of the Smithsonian Institution. In 1985 the Smithsonian Institution honored its own debt to the Wilkes Expedition with Magnificent Voyagers, a book and an exhibition detailing the great American exploration of 1838-1842.29.
