Chevrolet Leader News, Vol. 5, No. 2 (in the Ephemeral section of Open Video Project. Also, film #309 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Industrial]

This rather dull edition of Chevrolet Leader News features bathing beauties fencing on the beach, the utterly fascinating world of rice growing, more model boat racing, traffic cops getting aerial photographs of intersections with a camera attached to a balloon, and, in the latest animal abuse news, baby chicks being transported on a seaplane to South America. Actually, this doesn’t really qualify as animal abuse, so they had to make up for it by placing a couple of the chicks in a humiliating toy plane. Another slow news day at Chevrolet. The graphic design of the title cards is cool, though.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: ***. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
