Christmas Showmanship - See Video

Please watch the video of this rare film. It is the next item back in the photostream.

 

Back in the day, when movie theaters put on a presentation, they had greeting films that they would run during major holidays. These would run during the "short subject" portion of the show. Typically before the feature.

 

This vintage 35mm film is one of those greetings. It is what operators and collectors refer to as a "snipe". This film is green tinted and carries a holiday message for theater patrons. We run this snipe, and others, at the Lafayette Theater during the Christmas show, and they are very well received, generating overwhelming applause.

 

I'd like to invite you to watch this rare film right here on Flickr. It's the next item down in my photostream. As not all groups accept video, if you do not see the video next to this image in a group, please come to my photostream to see it.

 

This film, and others like it, are in my personal collection.

 

Merry Christmas!
