Producer and Director: Cal Jones. Cinematographer: Ralph Lopatin. Writer and Narrator: Dick McCutchen.
About 5.5 minutes into the film you’ll find a scene from the old Connie Mack Stadium. After some sleuthing, I found out that the runner rounding first was Jimmy Piersall of the Boston Red Sox. They were playing the Philadelphia A’s at the opening game of the 1954 season. I made a panoramic image construction of this clip.
For any resident of Philadelphia, this film is an interesting look at what was and will never be again, a vibrant city at the height of its industrial power looking confidently into the future.
The TV station which produced this film, WPTZ, became KYW Channel 3 after being purchased by Westinghouse.
a quite revolution
This film was probably used as an instructional video for Ford employees on how to operate tractors and build houses. however it’s hard to tell really as it could also be a promotional film to get people excited about ford tractors. The film is pretty basic in that it shows how Ford tractors and other vehicles are used to build a small community in Delaware. Overall it’s interesting if your into tractors or 50’s style suberbia, but not for anyone else.
