Storyline

This short starts with a short biography of Nostradamus and highlights some of his prophecies that came true in his own day (e.g., telling a young priest that many years later he would become Pope Sixtus V). Then we come to the present and learn that Nostradamus' writings foretold WWI. Several of his prophecies are then applied to the events leading to WWII, as well as to current war events.

Two History Shorts
25 February 2008 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Nostradamus (1938)

** (out of 4)

The first short in MGM's series that a look at the early life of Nostradamus as a scientist and how this led to his predictions of the future including the death of King Henry II. If you're interested in some of the predictions of Nostradamus then you should enjoy this short, which is well made and the footage backing the stories is well done.

More About Nostradamus (1941)

*** (out of 4)

MGM short tells some more predictions by Nostradamus. Being this film was released during WW2, a lot of the stories told deal with him predicting the current events. As with others in the series, if you're fascinated by Nostradamus then this short should keep you entertained.
