    Wow, Ed Sullivan selling a color exposure camera in a black and white commercial.

    8mm movie cams just like can be had for about $10. That model was “wind-up” and mechanical and many of them still work today. It was all metal and over-built. Back from the days when we still made things in America.
    The film however is hard to find, and even harder to have developed.

    He’s sitting & standing with rear projection behind him.

    Wow. Ol’ Ed wasn’t even there ! The entire thing was shot with green screens. (or, were they “blue” back then…)

    Because, as we all know, one wears a business suit while visiting Disneyland.

    Ironically, “The Ed Sullivan Show” wouldn’t be seen in color until the 18th season (right after The Beatles’ last apperance).

    Looks like Ed Sullivan never went to Disneyland in his life.

    Between 1956 and ’61, Ed’s Sunday night CBS variety show was co-sponsored by Eastman Kodak {they also brought you “THE ADVENTURES OF OZZIE & HARRIET” on ABC’s Wednesday night schedule}, and occasionally, these kind of ads appeared on his program {and sometimes, on Ozzie’s}. In the fall of 1961, Kodak dropped their sponsorship of those shows and began co-sponsoring “WALT DISNEY’S WONDERFUL WORLD OF COLOR” on NBC- the second half-hour directly opposite Ed!
