A Treasure Trove of Historical Film

Via William Edward Winter (Chessnotes) and John Saunders comes a link to a treasure trove of historical chess film. While the collection is centered around former world champion Max Euwe, also featured are former world champions Capablanca, Alekhine and Botvinnik. There are interviews and tournament footage, and while the page is in Dutch, it is pretty easy to identify which clips show which players.
The link to the films is here. Note: You may be required to configure your inline video player before viewing the first film.
