The Celluloid Salesman
Wednesday, April 27 at 7:30pm
In Person:
Film Collector & Head A/V Geek Skip Elsheimer

America's number one A/V Geek, and longtime CAC favorite,
Skip Elsheimer returns with rare advertising and sales films that
will teach you how to become the perfect salesman!
With the recent interest in the post-war Madison Ave advertising
(a la AMC's Mad Men), the A/V Geeks are proud to present
some of their favorite advertising and sales films. Some of the films, like
Kodak's Movies Move People and Hamilton Beach's Comprehending
Blending - realize the potential of motion pictures as a tireless yet
effective sales tools and are stunning examples to behold. Others, like
the newsreel-like press releases from Monsanto look informational
and news-worthy on the surface but have a sales pitch buried within.
And finally some films are curiosities leaving us to wonder how such a
train wreck of a film could be made. Besides highlighting some of the
films which are available on a newly released A/V Geeks DVD from
Kino, master showman Skip Elsheimer will be screening some neverbefore-
seen gems, including the baffling Half-Humanoid Presentation
and more!
