Feel free to discuss any topic related to the Mitchell Camera. Both 35 mm and 16 mm models are welcomed here. Also consider posting topics of other major motion picture cameras that you feel are important to the development of the Mitchell Camera.

Update: You may have noticed that we have returned to just one category as opposed to dividing the forum into 7 different areas. Apparently, it was an unpopular change and returning to the old format will allow posters to find their submissions more easily.

Satisfied Mitchell Camera Users from the 40's

Pebbles here. Apparently the Mitchell Camera Corp went through many different advertising campaigns through their long history.

One in particular made me laugh due to its approach. I believe the main theme is that of a testimonial. The plan was to contact and most likely pay, a highly well known A.S.C. individual and feature him on a full page ad, as a satisfied Mitchell Camera User.

pebbles here. I have found a few more Satisfied Michell Camera users from the 1940's. That James Wong Howe guy is my personal favorite.

mr. pebbles,
Thank you for posting those ads! Where did you find them? Great ads, you can see what the D.o.Ps looked like after all these years of reading their names on the film credits.

If they are from the 40s, were they published during the war, or after? I can't imagine Mitchell did much advertising during the war.
