    ...AND SELECTED SHORT SUBJECTS. Some of us, with more gray hair than we should, remember inviting the neighbors to enjoy silent movies.  Home entertainment of the late '40's and early '50's was an 8mm projector casting motion against the surface of the refrigerator.  Such homespun excitement may be revisited with this 5" Castle Films reel.  It stars the Babe in "Perfect Control" (probably no Oscars here, though).  Thrill again to the action-packed swat of the mighty Yankee!  We should assume that the feature can endure many showings as both the spool and the film seem never used (apparent NM/MT).  The box is in commendable Excellent condition with only minor wear at the corners.  On behalf of Castle Films, we apologize for the image of Ruth posing from the wrong side of the plate.
