Thanksgiving Filmstrip, 1977

November 25, 2021

“An Old-Fashioned Thanksgiving,” a 1977 filmstrip adaptated from a short story by Louisa May Alcott. From the series “Classic Stories for American Holidays,” published by Spoken Arts, Inc. Innocent schoolchildren were subjected to these things. Soundtracks were on LPs (or later, audiocassettes), and the beeps were cues for the teacher to advance the projector to the next image. Video by Uncommon Ephemera.
