Storyline

In this short, MGM showed distributors and exhibitors highlights from the studio's films scheduled to be released during the upcoming 1967-68 film seasons. The first two-thirds of the film contain excerpts of movies in production or ready for distribution, starting in the fall of 1967. The last third shows advertising artwork for titles still in development. At least one of the films in the latter group never made it to the theater screen (an adaptation of Cornelius Ryan's book "The Last Battle"), and two other adaptations were not released until many years later (Caravans (1978) [released by Universal] and Tai-Pan (1986)).

Advertising from yesteryear
26 September 2000 | by (Norcross, GA) – See all my reviews

This has been shown lately as buffer between films on Turner Classic Movies. It is a great advertising piece that screams the 1960s and makes you want to see some movies. A good majority of the films showcased here, however, aren't on video. Two weren't even made as films! TCM should just use this as a springboard for upcoming films.
