figure 1 JULIAN GROMER America's Outstanding Young Photographer, World Traveler and Sportsman… Superb Color Movies of African Life, Hawaiian Paradise, Sunny Cuba, and On The Shores of Lake Michigan …Special Musical Background … KIMBALL BUILDING Chicago 4, Ill. Phone: Harrison 8723 THE REDPATH BUREAU 24 W. 45th St., Suite 5-N New York 19, N. Y. Phone: MUrray Hill 7-7073 JULIAN GROMER JULIAN GROMER, in a few short years, has become one of America's top-ranking photographers and platform stars. His popular colored movies—AFRICAN LIFE, HAWAIIAN PARADISE and SUNNY CUBA are unmatched in beauty. They are complete, giving much attention to detail and extreme close-ups. Each scene is rock-steady, while the dissolving colors are superb. His travelogues are so well presented that you actually have the grand feeling of marking the journey with him. Mrs. Gromer is in charge of the special musical back-ground that is appropriately synchronized. The summer of 1947 Julian Gromer made an eventful trip to Nigeria, Africa, for the purpose of making a color movie of African Life. He succeeded in securing an unusual and timely motion picture in brilliant color of life in Africa today. This new program is being received with great enthusiasm. Julian Gromer is a daring sportsman. He has driven his outboard racing hydroplane in many of the largest regattas in the country. His collection of thirty-seven prize trophies is proof of his mechanical ability and good judgment, which are essential in making good movies. Mr. Gromer made a notable record for the U. S. Army as a photographer during World War II. The equipment the Gromers use is second to none. Many special effects have been developed in his own laboratory. To show the films in all of their natural beauty a 1,000 watt Ampro sound projector, equipped for A. C. and D. C. current, is operated on a projection stand. A Da-lite beaded screen, 72–94, is furnished. The Julian Gromer Color Movie Programs AFRICAN LIFE Important changes are taking place in Africa. Julian Gromer has succeeded in reflecting many of these changes in this brilliant color film. By accident, he caught two African tribes at war in all their regalia, fighting with poison spears and arrows. Very exciting. His party finally stopped the war. A visit to a chief and his five wives. Preparation of food, arts and crafts, scenes in a native barber shop and beauty parlor, a witch doctor in action. Also colorful life of an African prince; tin mining; brick making; fishing; scenes in a typical West Coast town, etc. ON THE SHORES OF LAKE MICHIGAN A thousand fascinating miles of cities, farms, factories, harbors and ships, fishing, playgrounds, resorts. (New for 1948–49 season). HAWAIIAN PARADISE According to Eastman Kodak Co. of Hawaii this film is 97% perfect. Picking and canning golden pineapples; harvesting sugar cane and taro. Daring surf riders at Waikiki beach; Oriental temples; volcanic mountains and craters; native dances; beautiful flowers and sunsets, etc. SUNNY CUBA Gay city of Havana; Pinar del Rio and the marvelous Vinales Valley; tropical flowers of Santiago de Cuba; San Juan Hill; the forbidden city of Preston; harvesting sugar cane and processing sugar; Cuban sports—cock fighting, jai alai and baseball.
