Color film of VJ Day 1945, Honolulu, Hawaii

VJ Day, Honolulu Hawaii, August 14, 1945 from Richard Sullivan on Vimeo.

I've been absolutely obsessed with this video since I saw it on The Retronaut back in September, which quotes Richard Sullivan as saying:
’65 Years Ago my Dad shot this film along Kalakaua Ave. in Waikiki, Honolulu, capturing spontaneous celebrations that broke out upon first hearing news of the Japanese surrender.’
