Trail Of The Rocket
Length: 15 Minutes
Martians sending spies to an Oldsmobile plant in Lancing, Michigan? Espionage by aliens? Not common themes one would think of when promoting an automobile, yet that is a prevalent theme in this comical tour of Oldsmobile advertising. Following Lucille and Johnny, important spokespeople for Oldsmobile, the film goes to a manufacturing plant so that the viewer can get a behind the scenes look at what makes an Oldsmobile automobile the best. With plenty of shots of cars getting assembled, this McCarthy era film serves not only as encouragement to buy an Oldsmobile, but also as political propaganda against spies in America.
