Talkie Unit Helps Clinch Sale (Aug, 1936)

Talkie Unit Helps Clinch Sale

JUST as visualized in the Charles Chaplin picture, Modern Times, the salesman can now break down sales resistance with a talking film device produced by a Ft. Wayne, Ind., manufacturer.

The carrying case, containing a projector, amplifier, screen and shadow box, records, needles, and films is very compact.

    The more things change.

    I used my laptop with a video presentation in it for the last 4 years to sell German windows and Detroit-made sunrooms. And to sell gutter protection.
    There wasn’t a video for the seamless siding, and I’m glad I didn’t have to carry that 40 foot section of it around with me. 🙂
    I would have had to carry a lot of records and film to make the presentations just a mere 70 years ago!!

    Is it a slideshow as opposed to motion picture?
