It's amazing what they used to get away with calling a "Movie Viewer", isn't it? At the top, a 1940s "movie viewer," and at the end, Chemtoy's 1960s/1970s model. You'll note that the viewer pretty much didn't change in a 20-25 year period of time. These simply were film viewers that you'd load a filmstrip into and advance a frame at a time. Kind of like a hand-held "Give-A-Show Projector" for one person to watch without batteries... or a View-Master without the 3-D.
I'd love to get my hands on these some day, because I'm curious as to if the films featured all new artwork, or if they were from cartoons of the day!

Please join me every day at the Fortress of Solitude Trophy room as I present photos of all sorts of Superman collectibles, from toys to games to puzzles to original comic book art and more! I am not offering any of these items for sale - all photos have come from eBay auctions of the past.
