mr_a: Gofly: mr_a: Gofly: VHS?  In my day we had filmstrips and we liked it!

/old

Are you old enough to remember the film strip projectors that had the 33 1/3 record that played, and then beeped when the film was supposed to advance? Then they came out with the more advanced cassette tape versions.

We had the cassette ones with the HEAVY headphones. This was in Fairbanks, Alaska in the 70s.

A few years ago-maybe 5 or so, I saw a bunch of them, along with a projector, at a consignment antiques store in Portland (Sellwood) OR.

Publikwerks: ChrisDe: Haven't seen the movie, is it historically accurate? Or Hollywoodized?

This is public school, where Jesus riding a dinosaur counts as a viable hypothesis. I'll take Hollywoodized as long as the general stuff is right.


I'm sure they'll get the O'Reily version soon for that much needed balance.

My GoogleFu sucks.  I seem to remember them being off white and sea foam green


That's the colors we had too, WV in the 80s. The offwhite may have also had that weird 70s brown/orange color too

This.  We also still had the science textbooks that foretold of Man one day walking on the Moon.


I feel comforted by seeing at the end of my dad's college genetics textbook "two scientists by the name of Watson and Crick have a marvelous discovery. Time will tell if they are correct and there are applications for it."

Regarding historical accuracy, there was a thread on a senator from... MA or CT in an uproar because of how their state was shown voting against the 13th amendment when the opposite was true.

Still, that movie is slow and boring enough to qualify for public school showing, that's for sure.

Hopefully they will clear up some of the historical inaccuracies. Until then, I don't think any schools in Conn will want the DVD

Obviously, subby hasn't been in a public school classroom lately.  My daughters 6th grade classroom has a touchscreen smart board (instead of chalk board), an LCD HDTV and surround sound.

Great, great movie. If nothing else, I learned a lot about Thaddeus Stevens, who I was largely unaware of before.
