Somewhere between chick tracts and YouTube lies the lost artform of the filmstrip – what some critics call the ur-Powerpoint. This program celebrates not only the educational filmstrips that delighted and bored students of a certain age, but commercial titles used to promote everything from lab safety to the new fall fashion season … circa 1971.

i’m burt lancaster and i approve this makeup

from the filmstrip “the professional studio girl makeup,” produced by a Hollywood company that I think sold cosmetics. I don’t have the audio for these filmstrips so I don’t know what Burt Lancaster had to say about the product line but I’m sure they’re a fine American company peddling the best in American-made consumer goods.
