Shot by an unknown American, these 16mm silent Kodachrome movies date back to the 1930s. The beginning shows a formal wedding. Scenes include entrance of the groom at :30, followed by the bride and bridesmaids at :59. The bride is at 2:00 with her father. The ceremony is seen at 2:10 with the ring going on the finger at 2;25. Big kiss at 2:33. Wedding cake gets cut at 3:25. At 3:40 we see a young boy, probably the son of the newlyweds, looks like the kid is getting his first haircut. At 4:30, a mock swordfight that is quite hilarious takes place on a farm. At 4:50, more scenes on the farm. The outfits look like the early 1940s. At 5:19, a dalmatian is seen. At 5:27 a very rare shot -- a woman lying in bed is seen, this was certainly rare given the mores of that era. At 5:38, son's birthday with the board game "Swamp Fox" given as a present. This material must date to the early 1960s or late 1950s as this game was part of a Walt Disney TV show starring Leslie Nielson. At 6:12, a girl plays with the family dog. At 6:40, another 1960s birthday party with candles being blown out. At 7:30, picnic with hamburgers and hotdogs, and soda. At 8:12 a game of patty cake. At 8:15, another wedding is shown, this one also quite elaborate. Bridemaids seen at 8:40. The bridge and groom are seen going to their car at 8:50. The groom is dressed in an Army outfit. Bride waves good bye at 9:12. At 9:30 a group of people emerge from a car in strong winds and two men lose their hats. At 10:12, another wedding is seen. This has some faded color...
At 12:00, kids are seen in Halloween costumes. Skeleton is seen at 12:50. Finally, a birthday at 13:00 with cake and ice cream.
