of the Month: In My Merry Oldsmobile
(now located on archive.org)
updated November 10, 2003
New: We've found a way to share these files without slowing down the rest of the site. The movies will now be found on archive.org. We hope to eventually have the entire 8 GB collection online.
Here's our fifth MOTM, an animated feature about the Oldsmobile car, ca. 1931.
Our thanks go out to Henk Smit who sent us a fine collection of commercials and promo movies that we will be featuring, one at at time, each month. Also, thanks go out to FordPiet, who suggested sharing this material in this way. Federico Martinez of Uruguay told us about archive.org as a way to share the files without bogging down the rest of the site.
These movies are very large files in MPEG2 (DVD) format. To play these files
you must have a software DVD player installed, which is usually the case if
your computer has a DVD-ROM. If you don't have a DVD drive you may have to
buy a software DVD player to view these files.
Please follow the directions under the link "Download options" on the archive.org site
