CC Cinema Short: How Old Cars Were Disposed Of In Portland, Oregon, In 1938

CC reader Mauro sent me the links of a few old film shorts, starting with this 1938 clip of folks amusing themselves in a somewhat unorthodox manner. It’s got an Italian sound track, and I rather suspect that the poor car-less Italians sitting in the Cinema Paradiso watching this must have winced a bit.

And here’s another one from Akron, OH, that seems to be on a similar theme, but it’s pretty surreal.


Is this some early version of an anti-car protest?
