Ford Home Almanac, July 1939; plus, Betty Boop Festival

Here's the cover for an almanac from Ford. I suppose it would have had tips on repairing dings from rogue jitterbuggers dancing on your hood.
More to the present, there's going to be a Betty Boop Festival in Wisconsin, August 5-8th.
There are screenings of Betty Boop shorts, presented by Stephen Worth of the ASIFA-Hollywood Animation Archive; it's unclear to me if these will actually be on film or video. As it's more of a Grim Natwick and Betty Boop festival, I'm not sure any 1939 Betty Boops will be shown, but it's possible.

  1. One jealous guy. I've had the pleasure of seeing Fleischer cartoons on the big screen in a theatre only once. And it was GREAT!

    Anyone in the Wisconsin area should treat themselves!
