  • Description

    THIS IS AN ADVANCE CHRISTMAS TOY STORY FOR MONTGOMERY WARDS.

    THE STORY: IS DESIGNED TO CARRY THE MESSAGE THAT, THOUGH IT IS EARLY, SANTA IS BUSY IN HIS WORK SHOP, GIVING THE NEW TOYS A FINAL CHECK. HE IS KEEPING UP WITH THE TIMES WITH HIS NEW TOYS THIS YEAR BY PUTTING SPACE-AGE INTEREST INTO THE YOUNGSTER'S TOYS.

    SHOWN ON FILM: IN SHOOTING THE STORY, THREE OF THE MOST MODERN AND PHOTOGENIC TOYS WERE PICKED TO DEMONSTRATE THIS FACT....NAMELY...SATELLITE TRAIN, THE "VANGUARD" AND "EXPLORER", CIRCLING THE EARTH, PLUS TWO-STAGE ROCKET. YOU WILL NOTE IN THE STORY, SANTA SEEMS TO HAVE THE SECRET OF MAKING THE ROCKET WORK. THERE IS ALSO AN NBC MOBILE TRUCK UNIT TOY.

    RE: CREDITS: NO CREDIT IS ASKED FOR ANY OF THE TOYS -- BUT -- IF YOU USE THE STORY, THERE ARE TWO SCENES IN WHICH, IN A VERY SUBTLE WAY, THE MONTGOMERY WARD PLUGS APPEAR. THESE SCENES ARE: 1 - THE SANTA WORK SHOP SIGN -- 2 - SANTA PLACING THE ROCKET TRUCK ON A SHELF BEHIND HIS POSITION ON The WORK BENCH.

    THESE PLUGS DO NOT STAND OUT TO ANY DEGREE, BUT THE MONTGOMERY WARDS PEOPLE WERE SATISFIED.
