91 Days Until Christmas

Here's a blast from the past! Castle Films used to make movies for you to show on your home projector. Back when Dad had his Bell and Howell movie camera, projector, and screen, we had a "Deputy Dawg" cartoon in black and white that I loved to see. This has music added to it; our home movies were silent and normally this would have been, too.

"The Night Before Christmas" - Castle Films - 1946 (8mm)

Here's the 16mm version, which has narration:

"The Night Before Christmas" sound version

But you wouldn't have seen this in your home unless you could afford a sound projector.
