  Our Featured Product


Advertising Animations Volume 1 DVD

This fascinating DVD is a collection of short animated advertising films made in the 1940's and 1950's. The collection explores a wide variety of areas of life at that time including how electricity is generated and how it is a key to our essential freedoms, how the average person can put the stock market to work for him to generate additional money to buy the finer things in life and several cold war films teaching the average American why capitalism and hard work is better than communism. All in all an excellent collection demonstrating the mood and thinking of the times.
