Description:

"In Mount Vernon Seminary, the T. W. Willard Motion Picture Company has made a remarkable Kodachrome publicity picture. No interior was too large for their color work, as is clearly shown by the fine shots of a "prom." Large rooms with groups of girls taken by artificial light were rendered in true colors with striking effect. The film demonstrates quite clearly how successfully color can be used in industrial and publicity filming and that no special limitations are involved. The most attractive titles were double exposed on well chosen bits of school scenery. The film has an air of friendliness and polish that is entirely in keeping with the spirit of the school it portrays. Just enough of the right things are shown to make a favorable impression on prospective patrons of the school." Movie Makers, Dec. 1936, 548.
