Operation Turkey: A Fun Find in Our Video Collection

18, July 2014

 

In the late 1960s, KMOX TV produced this commercial for Falstaff Brewery, sponsor of the channel's "Falstaff First Run Theatre" series. In this introduction to the showing of the WWII comedy Operation Petticoat, the host takes a moment to enjoy a Falstaff Golden Tap beer and suggests serving some to your family at the Thanksgiving holiday. My favorite line in presenting the movie is, "But first, a reminder about Operation Turkey." For more videos from our collection, visit our YouTube channel.
