“Power Frontier,” Alcan 16mm Film Catalogue (Montreal: Aluminum Company of Canada, Limited: c.1960), 16.
“Produced by Morrison-Knudsen, principal contractors for the power development section of Alcan’s Kitimat Project. Tells the story of the building of the huge Kenney Dam, the drilling of the ten-mile tunnel, and describes the excavation of the great cavern inside Mt. DuBose to house the electrical generating equipment. The film is of interest to all audiences, for in telling of how many skills and heavy machines are involved in today’s construction work, technical language is avoided."
