This classic Coronet film from shows that people are people, so why should it be, you and I should get along so awe-fully? Faded, but true. Features lots of shots of Dorney Park in Allentown PA, back in 1967. This reel was transferred from my own 16mm archive print using my Eiki Telecine. The Eiki projects a 24fps print at 30 frames per second for a flickerless NTSC transfer. A special diffusion plate eliminates the 'hot spot' of the projector, and the sound is pulled right from the optical track.

    Nice depeche mode reference Keri !!
    People are people so why should it be.. you and I should get along so awfully.

    I like the fact that there is a sideshow in the movie about being different. Nothing says inclusive as paying to stare at people who look different

    The conscience of recognizing that we all are in the most elementary way the same.
    This is not new… is been among us from the beginning of intelligence in humanity.

    A correction: He said no one else looks exactly like you. But it is a well known fact that everyone has a evil twin somewhere. Unless you are the evil twin.

    Any idea why you're getting green fringes when you're compensating for the pink fading?

    How do you know when a politician or THEIR Lodge brothers in CORPORATIONS such as media CORPORATIONS or hospitals and universities which are some of the biggest or WHEN clergy for any HOLY Roman EMPIRE Catholic church derivative IS LIEING OR MANIPULATING FOR SOME LIE AGENDA,,, THE ANSWER IS WHEN THEY OPEN THEIR MOUTHS

    "we are all equal just some are more 'equal' than others" Animal Farm ,Orwell about the Soviet Union.

    Rome had Bread and Circuses and kept it's population bitterly divided polarised red and blues Plaebaens versus Patricians sound familiar?

    Having seen your conversion rig in a recent video, you are getting exceptional transfer quality.

    Just Can't Get Enough of these old flicks Fran…this should be required viewing in today's schools, just sayin

    Great little film. Show it to the government.

    BTW, The opening sequence reminded me of a horror film. I don't know why.

    This was a deceptively simple yet beautifully complete little film. I'm especially impressed that it acknowledged the differences in people, rather than trying to promote "colorblindness," and it even touched on class differences. Obviously its goal was to normalize these differences to young people, and for that purpose, I think it did a respectable job. 💜

    The kids laughing at the end, sounds creepy. Cause it all looks unnatural to what is being shown.

    I like watching coronet films in school that means we don’t have to do anything so just watch the movie!

    People are people wherever they are, no mater there race, creed or colour. Except Smurfs, Na'vi, Yondu Udonta and doctor Manhatten!

    This needs to be at least a daily PSA !! Lose the advertisements for some useless product or alleged " entertainment " show, and open up program slots for this kind of content .

    I can't help but wonder what happened since 1976. Why doesn't this just work out? We all are different, yet so much alike. No need to hate someone for being different as there is so much we share!

    Yaaaaay, you deserve some great reward for that Depeche Mode reference :). One of my fav bands, I got to know them as a kid back in '90s when CDs became all the rage here and my brother borrowed a lot of them from his buddies, then copied them to cassettes. DM soon became my "special interest" band and my brother literally had to get every album up to Violator and tape it. I saved a vast part of his collection from ending up in a dumpster when he was moving out, and I still have it, though the sound quality has degraded from playing them over and over again.

    What a positive and wise, yet so simple movie. I really loved the message, given the historical context (PoC emancipation, and Stonewall coming shortly after). It's still so true, and now with the Taliban taking over Afghanistan and Poland not wanting to let refugees in, even more so! The (mis)governing Law(lessness) and (in)Justice party here has long lost any reason and human dignity. Just how fucked up one has to be to let people literally die out there in the cold, with no medical care or food?

    This is great. The roller coaster you see at the end of this film, the Flying Dutchman (it was called, not sure if it is still there) is the first roller coaster I ever rode. I lived on the edge of the Lehigh Valley so Dorney Park was the closest amusement park by far.

    You would think that Everyday People by Sly & The Family Stone would have been the last word, riffing as it did on the central concept in this film. I grew up watching The Big Blue Marble and they were trying to get the point across that way: they'd show people all over the world in different cultures and if it was explained right, you could understand why other kids lived the way they did or did the things they did.

    How wrenching it is that we are decades past this film, and those other things I mentioned, and people still haven't internalized this.

    Thanks for preserving these things; it's important. The digital version you made looks fantastic.
