I just received an email from someone who is looking for a specific filmstrip produced by the church.
This is what she wrote to me:
“Hi, My mom was in a film strip created by the church when she went to Orem high in the late 60’s/early 70’s. I believe the film was called “the good Samaritan comes to your town local highschool.” I would love to be able to locate a copy of the film. Any ideas on where to start to find something like that?
If you have any information please comment or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or comment on this post.
I received a phone call from a lady the other day who said that she had some “Book of Mormon” film strips that she wanted to send to me. She read my article on EzineArticles called A Forgotten LDS Art – Film Strip. This nice lady told me that she was going to send them free of charge. I was surprised. She told me that she had a feeling that she should send it to us. I have been collecting LDS media and other LDS art and LDS artwork for years now, that is why I started the website http://www.prophetpaintings.com.
I think that I might be the only person who remembers film strips. I used to use them in my Sunday School class when I taught the 10 – 12 year old Valiant Boys in my last ward. I will post pictures of them if you have questions feel free to let me know.
While at Deseret Industries the other night, my wife and I had a spectacular find. We found 3 volumes of “Church History” from 1964 in excellent condition for being almost 50 years old. These were actually copyrighted by President David O. McKay. This piece of LDS art is an excellent treasure. I am an avid collector of LDS media and church history items. What a find.
