Video #1: The Apple Lisa and Xerox Star were demonstrated in a joint session at CHI '98. This detailed video of the demonstration of the Apple Lisa user interface was presented by Frank Ludolph and Rod Perkins. Thanks to Frank for providing this illustrative video! Also see the demo of the Xerox Star done in the same session.
Video #2: The Apple Lisa (Lisa 1 with "twiggy floppies") was featured in this Apple-produced video. Undoubtedly this piece was not used widely as the Lisa 1 was pulled from production and replaced with the Lisa 2 featuring 3 1/2 inch floppy drives. Thanks Adam for this video! Also see Marcin Wichary's transcribed and cleaned up version of this movie here.
Video #3: The Apple Lisa (Lisa 1 with "twiggy floppies") was featured in this Apple-produced video. This one is special due to lovely cinematograhy and actor Kevin Costner. A strange thing to note about this piece is Mr. Costner's awkward use of the mouse (see below) with his left hand an gripping the mouse in a way nobody does today. I guess this might have been his first exposure to a GUI (made for better camera angles too). Thanks Adam for this video!
