Here's an interesting silent film that comes on a 400' reel, and is silent. It does not have beginning or end titles, but seems complete. It shows how troops in combat can be resupplied by air, using a paradrop system. You will see how canisters are loaded and then dropped and retrieved. These were actually called "Provisions Bombs" (or Versorgungsbomben ). They were carried in bomb racks and released like ordinary bombs, which they resembled in shape. Any bomber aircraft may be expected to drop them on positions where troops have been landed some time previously. The "bomb" is about 6 feet in length and 1½ feet in diameter, having a separate compartment at the end to contain the parachute. On release of the "bomb," this end cap is torn off and the parachute is pulled out. There is no shock absorber. On suitable ground and from a low altitude, "provisions bombs" may be dropped without parachutes. Even ordinary sacks of provisions are so dropped.Very interesting and historic stuff.

See photos, you will see what's in here. Pretty amazing stuff, and it is all in the public domain so you can use it on your website, in documentary films, etc.

Condition: This print is in really good condition. No vinegar odor. See photos to assess film condition. Sold "as is".

See my other auctions for a few other great old films!

This is a public domain film so you can use it as you please, as stock footage or on your website, etc.

More on this:



Please note: films cans or shipping containers are not provided with films unless specifically mentioned in the auction. That being said, we often do ship our films in cans when available.

Sometimes people ask for further information about the condition of an item. We try our best to explain condition, but our listing is not intended to exhaustively present all information -- positive or negative -- about an item. Please study the photos and read the listing carefully prior to bidding. For 16mm films, especially home movies, it is common for them to have surface dirt, scratching, and on occasion splices. Some may be in need of new leader, or have another issue. We try our best to point out all the bumps etc., but our descriptions are by no means perfect as many things are subjective. Auctions that indicate "films have not been viewed" means we have not watched the film or made a full assessment of condition. Please be aware, in all cases, films are sold "as is".

People often ask about the "public domain" status of films we sell. While we may point out that a film is believed to be p.d., it is up to the buyer to make a final determination. You can do that by exercising a simple copyright search (please don't email asking how to do this, but look it up for yourself).

I always combine shipping costs on multiple items purchased.

International bidders please note: I am sometimes asked if shipping costs are negotiable. They are not. The reason for this is, in the United States due to security restrictions, foreign shipments must be hand-delivered to the post office, and several customs forms filled out. This takes considerable time and effort, and as a result a handling charge is applied. Please keep this in mind when bidding. That being said, I do combine shipping costs for overseas shipments of multiple items purchased.
