Birds of Prey - 1938

In this documentary from 1938, examined are the various types of owls, vultures and hawks that inhabit North America.

With footage in the field that any Audubon Society member would admire, observe birds of prey in their natural habitat as they hunt for food and feed their young.  

Often nesting in high places like trees or cliffs, their strong talons capture mice, fish and birds while their hooked beaks tear flesh into bitesize morsels.

Poultry on the Farm - 1937

Welcome to Farmer Brown’s poultry farm, where he raises chicken, ducks, geese and turkeys.  

Visit the chicken coop where the head rooster rouses his harem of hens for breakfast.  White leghorn chickens lay an abundance of eggs which need to be incubated for healthy chicks to be born.

Take a look within the shell as the chick develops over time, pecks its way through and grows from a downy baby chicken to a full-size adult within 2 months.   

Farmer Brown has some Plymouth Rock chickens, ducks, geese and turkeys, as well.

Let's Talk Turkey - 1955

“Turkey – a dish that adds grace to every table!”

In this vintage cooking film, resident chef Marie Gifford shows how to prepare a turkey, not just for a 1955 Thanksgiving, but for turkey to enjoy 365 days a year.  

No longer do you need to be burdened by New York dressed turkeys, paying for and disposing of extra unneeded parts like the head or the feet.  

With the miracle of modern freezing technology, and developments at the FDA’s experimental laboratories in Beltsville, Maryland, you need only “pay for the meat you can eat.”
