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)).

Lionpower from MGM was a fascinating promotional film from the late '60s
13 July 2016 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

Just watched this promotional M-G-M short-shown to exhibitors-on their upcoming films for the 1967-68 season. The only movie from the trailers they showed I actually watched beforehand was The Feerless Vampire Killers which I remembered being amused by if a little confused. At the end, they showed a little test footage from 2001: A Space Odyssey which I've seen twice, both times I wasn't completely enamored of it though it was always a fascinating watch. I've also seen The Phantom Tollbooth though I didn't recognize the brief images presented for that as from the movie. I remember enjoying that a little. Anyway, this was a fascinating document I watched on YouTube as uploaded from TCM.
