Double Feature!

Rare, seldom-seen industrial and educational films from the golden age of America industry.


TO NEW HORIZONS : 1931-1945
U.S. Industrial film excerpts. Many of these films were paid for by large corporations to promote their products within their industry. The films present their sponsor's views of the world—which are amusing and sometimes creepy in a "big brother" way due to their subtle brainwashing that pushes capitalism and conformity via soap suds, automobiles, and a guaranteed happy future. Note: these are not the complete films; only film excerpts assembled in an entertaining collage that provides an interesting (and 50 years later, insightful) window into the marketing and morality of the large American corporation and how they needed the consumer to think.

In My Merry Oldsmobile (1931), Master Hands (1936), We Drivers (1936), Chevrolet Leader News (1936), Relax (1937), Precisely So (1937), Extra (Ca. 1938), Breakfast Pals (Ca. 1938), Three Smart Daughters (Ca. 1938), Oxydol Goes Into High (1938), Round And 'Round (1939), Back Of The Mike (1939), Leave It To The Roll-Oh (1940), Home Movies (1940), To New Horizons (1940), Let Yourself Go (1940), Magic In The Air (1941), To Market, To Market (1942), News Sketches By Max Fleischer (Ca. 1944-45).
