Produced by The Knox County Camera Club and the William A. Farnsworth Library & Art Museum, Knox County on Parade -1940
is a bit like discovering a long stored family album. Indeed, that does reflect the intent of the original film makers and, hence, of the present video producers as well. The 1940 silent color film came out of the efforts of a fledgling camera club eager to try the novel idea of home movie making and to use the new Kodachrome film. They seized the notion of filming the places and people of their home country at work, at play, bracing for war, and just plain getting on. The results were a resounding success locally at the time. However, only a few years later the film lay in limbo, virtually forgotten.
The present version was put together in order to acquaint new viewers with the scope and possibilities of the original while enhancing its flavor through new video technologies. The original unedited 16mm film consisting of almost 2 1/2 hours is housed at Northeast Historic Film. Sound added.
