COW Blogs : Bob Gillen's Blog : Archived Film and Movie Footage
One of the Internet Archive’s resources, Ephemeral Films, offers an online library of industrial, promotional and educational movies, many from the 1950s and 1960s. Most films represent serious attempts at educating the public on hygiene, science, and academic subjects.

The American Dental Association produced a 13 minute movie called The Haunted Mouth, set in a haunted house and narrated by Cesar Romero. Floss and brush, says Romero, who plays B. Plaque, or I will get you.

Ephemeral has a series of old home movies, including Family Camping Through 48 States - Part I. This movie follows the Barstow family of Connecticut through a series of summer vacation trips in the late 1950s. In 2000 the original footage was transfered to video and features a narration by the then 81 year old dad as the family tours and camps through the Northeast.

The home movie is worth watching by anyone interested in editing together some old family footage. The edit results are basic but present not just a glimpse of one family but also some educational insights from their travels.

Another of Ephemeral’s offerings is a series on 1950s drive-in commercials. Lots of pitches to get movie attendees to buy junk food. Good for a few laughs and memories.
