Atari Marketing Video 1982
« on: October 03, 2012, 15:18:06 PM »
"Video Games: a Public Perspective." Arcades and video games corrupting our youth? This vintage 1982 Atari funded production tries to quell fears by having various public officials, clergy, mom&pops tell how arcades are cool. Great period piece with shots of vintage computer gear, arcades, Atari labs, university game research, 80's hair, wide ties, and leisure suits.
Cameos by Dona Bailey (Centipede), Owen Rubin (Battlezone), Don Osborne (VP coin-op marketing). Hosted by Frank Gorin, Jack Morton Production, VHS tape.

this is a lovely find..enjoy guys
