This is actual film footage in it's entirety of G.K. Chesterton being made an honorary Holy Cross Crusader by Holy Cross College on May 1st, 1931. I'm sorry for the poor quality, but I had to purchase this footage from the archives of an English film company, and I couldn't afford the high quality version (more than $500). I have some stills of the higher quality version however, and have interjected a couple of them into the film where there were missing frames.

G.K. Chesterton was an author and journalist during the early part of the 20th century. He is best known for his "Father Brown" stories, a novel called "The Man Who Was Thursday", and a Christian view of the history of ancient art, culture, religion, and anthropology called "The Everlasting Man". The latter was the book C.S. Lewis said helped him the most in his own spiritual studies.
