Color film detailing Studebaker history
6 May 2013 | by earlytalkieSee all my reviews

A history of the Studebaker Corporation, issued in 1953 along with several other short films, this helped to celebrate the company's 100 years in business. Credited as a Screen Gems production, one can see the house used in the Hazel TV series used as a backdrop for the "new" 1953 model Studebaker shown at the end of the film. The Technicolor print is faded and scratched, as the existing print was found at the old Studebaker plant back in the 80s. Copies of this and other interesting Studebaker films can be purchased through the Studebaker National Museum in South Bend, Indiana. These Studebaker films are hokey, nostalgic, and a lot of fun. A friend of mine once said if this company had put more money into modernizing their product and less into films like this, they might have survived a bit longer!
