These are Steve Gelbart's family movies of when his father, Abe Gelbart, took them to Princeton in 1947 and met with many scientific luminaries. In order of appearance:



Opening scene - Atle Selberg at left, Carl Ludwig Siegel at right (the middle two people are unknown)

Around 33 seconds - Einstein

1:06 - Godel on left

1:25 - Selberg at the right, his wife Heddy in the middle

1:41- Paul Erdos (left) and Hermann Weyl (right)

3:01 - Paul Dirac at right, and his student Harish-Chandra at left

And in the last second, Steve Gelbart along with his twin brother Bill, and their mother.
