A cutesy oil promotional video from post World War 2 America that is intended to guide a young viewer through the processing of oil, from the oil rig drilling to crude oil refining. A young man named Bob and his faithful terrier visit an oil rig where they become transfixed by the processing of oil and petroleum hydrocarbons. Bob and his dog get a tour of the oil rig, see one being built, one dismantled, one catching fire, oil being shipped on tankers, and even gets to ogle the burned out hull of one of the ships that was destroyed by an oil fire. Particularly highlighted are oil rig jobs and what oil drilling companies do for the economy. This film also attempts to explain the importance of oil to the United States' daily operation, and describes multitudinous oil uses as more than just energy sources for cars and machinery. Historically significant, this film was made prior to America's dependence on oil, and serves as a benchmark in oil industry history.

This quaint historical film dramatizes the dramatic exploration of the American West by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark as they set out to map a route to the Pacific Ocean from the Mississippi River. Thanks to strong performances by the Lewis and Clark portrayers, the film works extremely well and is highly entertaining. The story starts with Lewis and Clark receiving their mission from President Thomas Jefferson, and starting out from the Mississippi River. Throughout the Lewis and Clark expedition, they encounter many obstacles. But eventually their trail leads them to North Dakota where they meet French trader Toussaint Charbonneau, whose wife is the famed Native American Sacajawea. They contract with Toussaint and his Sacajawea for guidance to the Pacific Coast. While traveling, Sacajawea's abuse at the hands of Toussaint is touched upon, but brushed off. This and other racist and prejudiced attitudes are ever present in the film. In fact, the film is a good record of the history of racism and racial stereotypes in the 1950's. The Lewis and Clark journey continues to the Rockies, and along the Columbia River. This fun historical film is packed with Lewis and Clark facts, as well as details about the Lewis and Clark map.
This is a brilliant historical overview of the first 33 United States Presidents, produced in the early 1950's. The history of America is influenced by the Presidents of the United States' actions, the film describes the US Presidents in order from President George Washington, the first president in war and peace, to President Abraham Lincoln, a humble leader, who preserved the Union, and on up to the 50s. Stuffed with interesting President facts, the movie is fast moving and covers the great American leaders at a break neck pace. Certain leaders receive more mention than others, such as President Woodrow Wilson who won the Nobel Prize for his efforts in World War I and helped form the League of Nations. Lastly, President Eisenhower, the thirty-third president, was the architect of victory in World War II. America has had many great executive power leaders and the legacy of these men will surely continue to influence the way America’s leaders serve.
This astonishing historical film educates the audience about the old plantation system in the South, but does so in a revealing way that exposes the racist attitudes and the remnants of slavery in the South. At the beginning of the film, a white family takes one of many available old plantation tours and learns about the layout of the plantation, including the main house, the surrounding fields, and the slave quarters where blacksmiths, carpenters, and field hands worked and lived. The echoes of slavery are ever present, as these were certain slave plantations during black slavery. After viewing the old plantation house, the tourists go around the countryside by car, observing the South in the 1950's. The footage captures images of black tenet farmers working in the cotton fields and at their houses which differ little from the old slave quarters. This demonstrates how southern segregation had hardly ceased. In the end, a group of well-dressed whites are shown at an outdoor party, while the narrator says, “Today, if we visit a social gathering in the South, we'll see some of these things. The gentle manners and courtesy. The separation of society into distinct groups. And the relationship of that society to the land, which supplies its wealth. These are some of the things the plantation system has contributed to Southern life.” This is a fascinating and absorbing film due to its antiquated position on African American slavery and slave plantation homes.
Kentucky Pioneers is a great historical dramatization produced by Encyclopedia Britannica about the settling and creation of the State of Kentucky. A fascinating piece of Kentucky history, the engaging story follows two families who begin their journey West to Kentucky. The wilderness road they faced was certainly dangerous, but such was early American pioneer life during the great westward expansion. They face many hardships and dangers along the way. For a short time, both families are welcomed into a fort community where they have a chance to build up their lives, farm, and home, ensuring their future on the frontier. As true early frontiersman, they must build everything from scratch, including early American log cabins. Despite all of the hardships and uncertainty they face which was common in the life of a frontiersman, they know that if they don’t succeed in Kentucky, there are places further West they can explore and live freely. This American pioneer video is well produced history
