Flashback: Vintage Kodak Commercials

If you’ve been wallowing in depression over the demise of Kodak, here are a few vintage films to cheer you up.

An advertisement for “dependable Kodak film; the film in the yellow box”. Ain’t life grand?

And finally, because they’re all cool and I couldn’t decide, here’s one where they try and persuade you to take loads and loads of photos of your pets.  With helpful advice!

These films, and about a million and a half other clips or movies that are now in the public domain can be viewed or downloaded at archive.org.
