These two 8mm movie reels contain scenes of the Grand Canyon. They were produced by World in Color of Elmira New York. Each film is in its original box. Each side of the box contains statements about the films. Those statements are: "Color Editions, Printed on Eastman Kodachrome Film", "8mm, 50 Ft. Aprox.", "Superlative Pictures of Theatre Quality". One states "Grand Canyon, Reel 1, Fred Harvey, Kodachrome", the other states "Grand Canyon, Reel 2, Fred Harvey, Kodachrome".
Inside each box there is a small brochure that lists all movies in the 'World of Color" Series. The brochure also lists the original price of each film. These Grand Canyon films originally sold for $7.50 each.
About the date of 1940s that I used in my title, I researched this series trying to find a website stating the date each was produced, but had no luck. The closest thing I found was a statement saying that most all World In Color 8mm films were made in the 1940s with just a couple from the year 1950. So, odds are real good that these two are from the 1940s.
Lastly, I have not viewed these films because I do not have an 8mm projector. I removed each reel from its box and visually inspected it and both look to be in excellent condition. I hope the previous owner put the films back in their respective boxes but since I obtained them at an estate sale, there was no one to ask. As a result, this listing is a non-returnable purchase.

SHIPPING CHARGE INFO:
I do combine shipping on multiple items purchased. However, my web host is not set up to calculate multiple item shipping costs. At checkout, you will be charged full shipping price on each item purchased and I will refund the appropriate amount of overpayment. If you are uncomfortable with that, you can send me an email with your zip code and stating which items you'll be purchasing and I'll calculate the correct combined shipping charges and send you a custom invoice.
Also, every January the postal service increases shipping charges. This year, many price increases were a bit steep with some package categories adding as much as a dollar on to an already high shipping charge. I try to absorb some of the new charges but that's getting harder with each increase.
International shipping charges also took a tremendous leap. International shipping will now depend on the country. Buyer must contact seller for international shipping charges before making a purchase. Seller reserves the right to void any international transactions where contact has not been made prior to purchasing.
All items in my listings come from either estate or garage sales. I do not know if they came from homes where smoking or pets were present. All items are sold in the same condition as when I received them.
