THEATRE ADVERTISING – GLASS SLIDE

April 3, 2011 § Leave a comment


Cinema advertising has changed heaps.  When this slide was made and hand colored by an artist in the 1960’s, glass slides were used for projection before the first movie and at intermission before the start of the second feature film.

Slides were size 3″ x 4″ approx.  There was only one slide  made for the above film.

NOTE RE THIS SITE: A percentage of the pictures are ‘politically incorrect’ (after 50 years) – that’s ocean life, our mental evolution or ‘learning’. We suggest a viewing of J.Y. Cousteau’s award winning feature “The Silent World” (1953) to compare the great man’s film making attitude at that time to sharks caught by Calypso crew.

LIFE etc

Illustration. "Sharks and Fisheries of Australia".

Illustration.  1950s

1-DSC00531(Above illustration of shark teeth).From the 1950s when Grey Nurse sharks were still considered “Man Eaters”.  That belief changed when the first underwater cinematographers began filming them in 1961.  It took a few years for the new information to circulate in the pre-digital era.

When did white sharks begin jumping into the air after prey?  It’s a recent occurrence – according to experts.
