Great! I felt like I had the whole theater to myself.
Dave - Great post! That very first movie listed, I believe it was called "Down The Gasoline Trail" would be a great one to show a small child who is starting to show some interest in dad's or grandpa's old Model T Ford. That movie, plus a bit of explanation by dad/grandpa could go a long way toward stimulating a small child's curiosity in regard to how an internal combustion engine runs!
Dan Kellicut (sp?) - Your two little grandsons ("the boy" and his little brother) come to mind. Betcha' they'd love that film, and learn a lot from it,.....harold
Okay,....one more comment,....that movie on how a differential works is probably the best I've ever seen! I have a young grandson (a bunch of them in fact) but one in particular that seems to like "wheels"! I have a feeling that he'd learn a lot from several of these films on your list Dave,.....thanks again for the post,.....harold
Anybody else recognize the voice narrating the first film?
Steve, it sounds like it could be Paul Harvey?
Nope. You're in the right ball park, but off base.
Sounds like former President Ronald.
Jesse got it.
He was before John Cameron Swazey wasn't he?
My favorite is Alexander Scourby. I remember that Lowell Thomas said for punishment, his father would tell him to stand in the corner of a room and NOT think about a white elephant ...
I remember watching a program on the TV in the early/mid '50"s titled "Industry On Parade", narrated by Lowell Thomas. It was one of my most favorite programs. Dave
