Thunderbirds Arrow Films
Arrow Films produced a range of five 8 mm films in
various formats. All are
1965 A. P. FILMS LTD.
The leaflet below shows what was available - this
probably dates from around 1968/1969 as the reverse shows available
Joe 90 films.
They contain excerpts from TV episodes.The
abbreviation S. V. stands for short version. Lady Penelope's Triumph is
from the episode Trapped In The Sky.
The packaging changed over the years as did the
Arrow Films logo.
The films initially came packaged in a soft Perspex container with a
photo insert and attached to a backing card. As can be seen the
original price was 49/6 - this was reduced to 39/6 by the application
of a yellow sticker.
The first 3 pictures on the right refer.
The packaging was later changed to a colour artwork
box - individualised for the contents. All box text - as far as I can
ascertain - refers to the contents as the black & white Super 8
version and any alterations were made by the addition of stickers to
indicate colour and/or Standard 8. Variations are show in the pictures
on the right.
The boxes for 30 Minutes After Noon & Day Of
Disaster (pictured below) are larger as the reels are 150 ft, the
others were 45 ft reels.
