Fantail Movies

Fantail Movies on the USS LaVallette, July 26th, 1942

Shipmates watching fantail movies on the USS LaVallette, provided George with a still subject to sketch. Do you think George suspected that “20mm” films would someday be obsolete, as he included this detail in the description of the drawing?

    I forgot all about the Fantail movies underway until I saw your drawing. I would guess that is a lost pastime aboard ship today! Thank you for your contribution to history and Happy Birthday George.
