Geoff,
The filming dates for the video you posted, was in 4 chunks, starting around 1960, and the most recent was 1974.

If the volume is turned up on the video, the narrator explains that part.
🤷🏼‍♂️👍

Sincerely,
Idahodutch

Yep. This was on a dvd that had a cover of A&E Treasure the lost Dutchman mine - hence the question.

Have you seen that 1998 video? Is this it or not?

Geoff, the video you posted was Bob Lee's. A different (and earlier) piece than the A&E program. He also produced a book during that time-frame.

I've seen the A&E video you're looking for somewhere online but can't remember where.

Geoff,
I don’t think I’ve seen it. 😕
Potbelly Jim is a good guy, I don’t think he would steer you wrong 👍🤓

Awesome, thank you for the confirmation, much appreciated!

Actually Russ, I think I made a mistake ;)

Geoff, the video you posted was definitely Bob Lee's. I had a DVD at one time but I gave it to a friend.

The video I thought I had seen online was the "Unsolved Mysteries" episode on Walter Gassler. (Season 1, Episode 21, starting at 13:26 and ending at 25:24)(this episode is available on YouTube).

The 1998 A&E piece, which Geoff is looking for, I'm pretty sure I watched that on VHS tape instead of online.

I got rid of all my old VHS tapes a long time ago, but I'm pretty sure someone on these forums probably still has a copy. Hopefully someone will see this thread and contact you.

in 1998, Tom Kollenborn wrote an article about the A & E film crew and the project. There may be some clues in the article.


This may or may not be the same A & E video. The article refers to a video called "A&E’s documentary on the History of the Superstition Mountain region." It seems strange that there might be two 1998 A & E videos about the Superstitions and LDM.

Yes, that's it :icon_thumleft: Jim Hatt posted some photos etc. over on DUSA. He used to have some video linked up, but the video link no longer works. But lots of photos where he explains what's going on with the documentary and who was involved.

We can't post links to other forums, so just go to DUSA, Gold Prospecting and Treasure Hunting, True Stories - Chasing the Legend, navigate to page 2, and go to the "DOCUMENTARY - The Lost Dutchman Mine ~ Behind the Scenes ~ thread.
