Vintage 1965 8mm Beetle Bailey with sound track

Wednesday, December 26th, 2007

Here’s a nice 8mm Beetle Bailey home movie from Americom. The reel is a traditional silent movie, but with the “Free Sound Track Record” you can now enjoy sound to go along the cartoon! Just fire up that old turntable and spin the nice flexi disc, while you use any 8mm projector - etc. like my Nilus, to project the cartoon!

Very cool but timing must be rather precise I guess :-) Nevertheless first time I’ve ever seen a package like this - at least in Denmark. The price tag is still there - 46,50 dkr. that’s like $8 in 1965 - expensive entertainment!
