Return with us now to a look back at a more innocent time. This outstanding collection of vintage films rescued from obscurity features four early examples of selling a product or service to a less hardened audience. It wasnt until 1984 that the first ever modern-day infomercial was created but these films from the 1950s and 1960s delivered a message and attempted to brand an image in American minds. We have lovingly restored these little cinematic gems, and offer them to you for the very first time on DVD.

First, from the 1950s comes "This Is Roller Skating," a free-wheeling examination of the popular sport that also serves as a promotion tool for a line of skates that were sold by the Ware Brothers. Next, actor Jock MacGregor hosts "Science and Your Garden," featuring a look at how to make your greenery great. Then, the stars of "Leave It to Beaver" teach the importance of saving money in "Beaver U.S. Saving Bonds and Stamps." Lastly, 1968's "The Noisy Landscape" is a film presented by the American Institute of Architects that argues against putting up too many signs in urban areas.
