this is an auction for...well, I don't really know what to call it...
I guess you would call it a mini movie projector and films...probably from the 1950's??
there is a plastic yellow *projector* that the films sit in...this runs by one AA put the film press the black button...the wheels turn inside, you peep through the eyeglass hole..and WHALLAH!!! running movies!!! the little projector measures: 4 and half cm by nearly 7cm by just over 3 and a half cm...
there are 7 reels of film - one is out of its little plastic case - I think it is of Betty Boop...the other reels that I can descipher: Abbott & Costello - meet the Invisible Man..Laurel & Hardy - Smelling Salts..Superman - Mechanical monsters...Charlie Chaplin - Slapstick..Mighty Mouse - Typhoon..(I cannot descipher one name)...
the reels measure: just over 4cm by just over 2cm ..just over 14cm in circumference...
there is writing on the yellow case: UK Design 1020381..Made in Hong Kong.
there is writing on the cases of the films: Hong Kong..UK Pat 1593591/2 UK Design 1020380
now...the bad news: the projector runs SOMETIMES...because inside the workings is a little white wheel (which turns when you press the button)(see first and last photo)...this has knobs on it - most of these knobs are missing - so it just does'nt turn consistantly..some bright spark may be able to repair it....
