The F5 tornado is moving through Walker, Michigan, the northwest suburbs of Grand Rapids

This is a clip from an 8mm home movie taken by Eugene Dohm. Film transfer courtesy of Peterson Design Studio. Watch the suction vortices forming on the left side of the tornado. This is the earliest known film footage of suction vortices.

The clip plays through twice. The footage of the funnel is taken looking northwest. The dark footage is looking northeast. The tornado funnel cannot be seen, but two blue flashes can be seen as electrical lines and transformers are hit by the tornado.
