Chris Epting of the Huntington Beach (California) Independent has an article on some recently uncovered 1927 home movies of Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig at a dinner function in Cypress, California.

In 2009, the New York Times reported on another Ruth/Gehrig home movie.

screening at the Westborough, Massachusetts Library will feature three new home movies made by local families, under the guidance of filmmaker Hanan Daqqa.

Through a process called Family Participatory, parents collaborate with a professional filmmaker to document a piece of their child’s life in an artistic three to five-minute film.

The results are incredible. Short and meaningful films that can be shared with friends, relatives and the world. When you watch any of them you will realize it is not another home movie.
