These threads that I create are quite silly and I mostly do them to satisfy myself. There is a little part of me that hopes that others who are rekindled in their memories can come forward and contribute more information. There are still many movies, often short in running time, that I would love to see before my final voyage into the hereafter.

Although the three companies I profile here don't amount to a hill of beans in this crazy world, some of their best product has managed to survive under the umbrella company that now encompasses them and some of their contemporaries: https://phoenixlearninggroup.com/ I am also taking a detour from the usual topic of “shorts” to chronicle some of the educational 16mm films and VHS product of a major network, the Columbia Broadcasting System. CBS owned two of these companies for a decade and a half.

Bailey Films, Film Associates of California and Phoenix Films were among the many educational film companies that flourished during the Golden Age of 16mm, a format that started tentatively in the 1920s with the pioneering Eastman Kodak Teaching Films and Electrical Research Products Inc. (later taken over by Encyclopædia Britannica) as an economic alternative to 35mm. By World War II, the number of these rivaled the other, more theatrical, kind as the smaller cameras and projectors became firmly established for travelogues, documentaries, school and military how-to reels. The demand for school films in particular escalated in the late 1950s after the Soviets launched Sputnik and the Eisenhower administration started pumping more tax dollars into the public schools in order to keep up, much of it trickling down into visual media. The Golden Age crested for roughly three decades until VHS, cable TV and the internet took over. However, even as late as 1996, companies like these were still providing material for schools, libraries and businesses in both video and motion picture film, primarily because the latter benefited from a much sharper image than its murky flop-in-the-machine counterpart. (Not to mention, actual films often outlast tapes and anything digital, as many of us avid DVD collectors discover when our favorite movies unexpectedly stop playing after several years for no explainable reason.)

The oldest of the trio discussed on this thread was Bailey Films, beginning as Bailey Film Services with Al Bailey in charge in 1938. Its headquarters were in sunny Hollywood, first located on Cosmo Street and later De Longpre Ave. The earliest films were released both with soundtracks and without since many schools still had silent projectors at that time; thus, surviving films of this period may have rather limited appeal today. However one prominent contributor, travelogue maker Guy D. Haselton, was making good use of color Kodachrome early on with a scenic series on national parks.

By the early fifties, Bailey Films' specialty had become the art subject reel, particularly the step-by-step process covering everything from printmaking to puppets. Noteworthy during this period were Wayne Thiebaud's in-depth studies of museum paintings and sculpture. (Wayne turns 99 this year.) Although the company's artistic side only casually embraced the fine art of animation, Bailey was nonetheless a key backer of a young Ray Harryhausen during those formative stop-motion years before and between Mighty Joe Young and The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms.

 

Headquartered over on Santa Monica Blvd, also in the Los Angeles area, was Film Associates of California. Launched in the spring of 1954 by Irwin Braun and Paul Burnford, the latter was already a documentary veteran working with Paul Rotha and John Grierson in England and, later, MGM's short subject department (Crime Does Not Pay, Pete Smith, etc.) before launching his own independent company distributing through Bailey Films and Encyclopædia Britannica in the beginning. As the key director of most Film Associates' titles during that first decade, great care went into selecting subjects that would appeal to the widest range of ages possible. One typical title, Prehistoric Animals Of The Tar Pits: The Story Of Rancho La Brea, may only be available online currently in its black & white version (although color prints also exist) but it hasn't aged much in its educational value after over six decades.

Burnford split from Braun by 1963 but would continue distributing some of his independent productions through Film Associates. Three years later, “FA” (as known by the logo displayed on film) was taken over by CBS, the leading TV network that needed an additional 16mm outlet for its many educational TV shows. (They had already been tapping McGraw-Hill and Young America Films during the previous decade and would continue to do so with the former, along with others like Carousel Films.)

CBS also soon took over Bailey Films, minus Al who retired, and merged the two as Bailey-Film Associates or “BFA” by early 1969. For a while, Irwin Braun and his wife remained in charge with limited interference from the corporation in power. Renamed BFA Educational Media in 1971, expansion included a new bigger building in Santa Monica proper and newer contributors in charge of in-house production and product sales. Lloyd Otterman succeeded the Brauns after their departure in 1975 and George Holland headed the company past CBS's sale of it to Phoenix Films.

Of the many filmmakers working for BFA, three who started pre-CBS were quite prolific in output.

Norman Bean handled a wide range of nature subjects in his A First Film and Backyard Science series with a keen eye on how to maintain an average 6 year old's attention span. While he was certainly not the first to feature close-ups of insects and plant growth, his work was among the most watched in schools during the 1970s especially. Not that many present day 50-70 year olds who were kids back then would recognize his and his then wife Marjorie's names today.

Wayne Mitchell started in the 1950s as a travelogue maker and made his last film in 2009 at the age of 83 before officially retiring. He displayed a strong interest in those local customs getting lost with all of the new technology and international mass-culture. At one point, he lamented on the increasing number of snow-mobiles invading Eskimo territory during his own life time.

 

Perhaps the most colorful of the bunch was Bernard Wilets, one of those versatile Pisceans who easily fluctuated between topics totally unrelated to each other. His all-inclusive Discovering Music series is a must-see series; one such title, Discovering American Folk Music, manages to get Irish and Scottish ballads from centuries ago, black gospel, raw blues and late sixties psychedelic rock & roll all covered in a mere 21 minutes! He also handled push-button debates like school bus segregation in The Bill Of Rights In Action: De Facto Segregation which may seem a trifle dated now... or not? Even today, racial differences are no small issue.

More importantly, he provided some of the most creative talk-fests to invade the classroom since Frank Baxter educated the royal court of the Planet Q in the classic Bell Science specials. One can't help but chuckle over the very premise of Man And The State: Marx And Rockefeller which transports the ghosts of two polarizing figures in history, Karl Marx and John D. Rockefeller, to a futuristic society resembling Logan's Run so that these folks of the future can have some laughs watching them argue it out. After leaving BFA right around the time of its merge with Phoenix Films, Wilets joined Barr Films (covered here: http://forums.tcm.com/topic/114972-a-shortie-checklist-an-assortment-of-culinary-delights/ ) which reissued his earlier titles with only slight modifications in the opening credits and got him to make more of them, including the very eighties retro Grant And Lee On The Civil War, set on a silly game show called “Risk Your Reputation”.

As Geoff Alexander covered in Academic Films for The Classroom (McFarland & Co., 2010), Wilets had a very special arrangement with the Screen Actors' Guild and was able to tap many familiar faces from television and the bigger screens provided he forgo screen credits. This is absolutely maddening to us movie geeks who recognize the faces but can't find any listed names. Granted, I am pretty certain that a 10-year old Jason Bateman is displaying his trademark smirk in The Veldt, one of the quirky Ray Bradbury adaptations he produced but didn't direct, despite the Internet Movie Database (imdb.com) not including it in Jason's filmography.

Phoenix Films was the third party to become part of this growing family, which became Phoenix-BFA Films & Video in 1981 (later the Phoenix Learning Group) after CBS sold its interests. Launched just eight years earlier by Heinz Gelles (formally of McGraw-Hill) and Barbara Bryant (of Films Incorporated) along with Leo Dratfield, Phoenix Films began mostly as a distribution company. Soon that groovy animated bird in its on-screen logo was accompanying personal in-house productions as well. The 1970s was a very rich decade for experimental film making with many controversial stories being tried out that Hollywood and major TV companies would consider taboo even today, such as a story about a dying woman harassed by hospital staff in The Detour and gender-role questioning in William's Doll. Barbara Bryant herself later contributed to some highly innovative adaptations of children books along with Gary Templeton for a sub-company Evergreen Productions.

Phoenix handled a higher number of hour to two hour features than BFA, which tended to keep most of its non-TV product under a half hour in length. Among the major titles were Helen Hayes: Portrait Of An American Actress (Nathan Kroll, 1973), Antonia: A Portrait Of A Woman (Judy Collins & Jill Godmilow, 1974), Rivers Of Sand (Robert Gardner, 1974), The Shadow Catcher (T.C. McLuhan, 1974), Grass Roots: Rural Communes In The U.S.A. (Luciano Martinengo and Thomas Wahlberg, 1975), Earth People (James Rich, 1975), Buenos Dias, Compañeras = Women In Cuba (Aviva Slesin, 1975), The Hollow (George T. Nierenberg, 1975), Potters Of Hebron (Robert Haber, 1976), Paul Robeson: The Tallest Tree In Our Forest (Gil Noble, 1977), Twyla Tharp: Making Television Dance (Don Mischer, 1977), One Of Kind (Harry Winer, 1977), Gatemouth Brown And Gate's Express (Carl Colby, 1977), The Jerusalem Peace (Mark Banjamin, 1977), Zerda's Children (Jorge Prelorán, 1978), Kid Thomas And The Preservation Hall Jazz Band and Clifton Chenier (Carl Colby, 1978), In Dark Places: Remembering the Holocaust (Gina Blumenfeld, 1978), Deep Hearts (Robert Gardner, 1979), Martha Clarke: Light & Dark (Joyve Chopra, 1980), With God On Our Side (Alexander von Wetter, 1981) and Children Of The Holocaust (Jack Eisner & Roman Kent, 1983). Most longer productions post-BFA merge tended to be direct-to-video projects, such as How Will I Survive? (Kathleen Kelley Reardon & Johanna Demetrakas, 1993), a study on women coping with breast cancer.

Both Phoenix and BFA offered a very international menu to the 16mm market and I could easily double the lists below to include the many, many foreign imports that were often dubbed in English and non-narrative films that required no translations. Yet space restraints here and the fact that they were only Phoenix and BFA in U.S. distribution kept my oversize appetite in check. Among a selection worth mentioning: Han Van Gelder's Adventures In Perception (Netherlands, 1969), Ulrich Schweizer's Katutura (Switzerland, 1971), Kostas Chronopoulos, Simon Louvish & Jorge Tsoucarossa's Greece Of Christian Greeks (Greece, 1972), Charles & Martina Huguenot van der Linden's This Tiny World (Netherlands, 1972), A Pretty Kettle Of Fish (France, 1973), Ronald Bijisma's Brainwash (Netherlands, 1973), Michel Lang's Carole, I Love You (France, 1973), Gilbert Dassonville's Abyss (France, 1973), George Sluizer's The Raft (Netherlands, 1973), George R. Sluizer & Bert van Munster's Letters, Three Days Respite and Zeca (Netherlands, all released in the U.S. in 1974), El Páramo de Cumanday (Colombia, Gabriela Samper & Ray Witlin, 1977), Clay Kelton's Mateo and Unlikely Star (Costa Rica, 1979), Said Manafi's Timghriwin: Mass Marriage Of Berbers (Austria, 1986), Fernand Berenguer's A Double Souffle (France, 1986) and Frédéric Fougea's “Lord Of The Animals” series (France, 1989-1996). The National Film Board of Canada, Film Australia and Gakushū Kenkyūsha with Japan's Gakken Films also provided plenty of material between the 1970s and '90s.

In terms of animation, Phoenix again had the edge over BFA in backing several U.S. independents such as John Canemaker. Yet a large portion of the cartoons came from overseas, particularly Czechoslovakia's Bratri v triku which was responsible for Zdeněk Miler's durable pantomime character The Little Mole. Later cartoons offered through Phoenix-BFA Films & Video frequently came from Canadian and British television: Perennial Pictures' Mirthworms (1984), Neil Innes Raggy Dolls (broadcast with Yorkshire Television, 1986-1994) and Marina Productions' Little Miss and Mister Men (French-UK co-productions, 1995-1997).

In May 1997, the re-organized Phoenix Learning Group Inc. acquired the bulk of Coronet Film's backlog, which I and others spent a long time updating at Wikipedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Coronet_Films so that we don't need to exhaust our pretty little heads here. Other acquisitions included some of Centron's catalog (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Centron_Corporation ) and roughly half of the Learning Corporation of America (covered here: http://forums.tcm.com/topic/114972-a-shortie-checklist-an-assortment-of-culinary-delights/ , but I added their animated cartoons below since many online are worth investigating). Today all of the new material for schools is made exclusively online or for DVD, so I am cutting off around the year 2003 here with just a few final entries to such long running series as Backyard Science. I should also add that Phoenix-BFA distributed a series by Aames Teleproductions that covered “how to use” lectures on early Microsoft programs of 1991-1994, which I don't get into below like I do a few other select direct-to-video efforts; teaching about computers in the VHS and film format can be quite challenging but Phoenix-BFA was always up for it.

As usual, this alphabetic list is not complete, so feel free to private message me with additions. Apart from the three companies mentioned above, I also included King Screen Productions and Kaw Valley Films. The latter often distributed through Coronet, which Phoenix later acquired, while the former released mostly through BFA, although I include the independently distributed and Oscar winning The Redwoods.

Major CBS shows distributed by BFA... and some other companies

 

As mentioned above, CBS owned Film Associates and Bailey Films between 1966 and 1981 as well as utilizing McGraw-Hill, Carousel Films and other companies to distribute many of its educational TV programs to the 16mm market before CBS Video handled much of it on the VHS format.

Yes, there was a time when movie projectors in the classroom showed material previously aired on living room small screens. During the early years of TV broadcasting pre-videotape, a select number of prestigious programs were preserved with either 16mm or 35mm motion picture cameras attached to monitor screens; their trade name being “kinescopes”. Although fuzzy in picture quality and not representing accurately the live image initially seen by TV viewers, this format nonetheless transferred easily to the social studies classroom by 1954 thanks to suppliers McGraw-Hill (working with Jefferson Productions initially) and Young America Films, both handling such shows as The Search, See It Now and You Are There. This continued through the 1980s when Carousel Films was still distributing CBS Reports and extracts of 60 Minutes on 16mm.

I debated on whether or not I should even bother with TV shows since they don't fit the typical definition of “short film” and only some of these were even handled by the companies I showcase in this thread's title. Yet a segment of 60 Minutes, for example, was considered a “short subject” in its marketing. Longer programs were shown in separate parts running under a half-hour, this being the length of most movie “reels” by the 1970s when the one, two and three “reel” formats were consolidated. On the plus side, it does open up another interesting genre for pop culture and film enthusiasts alike since there is a wealth of interesting titles listed below worth pursuing. I purposely end in the 1990s here since this marked the official cut-off decade for the 16mm motion picture film format and the take over of the digital internet age of today.

 

Film Associates of California started distributing the “Of Black America” series in September of 1968 for the new school year almost as soon as it ended its initial broadcast on TV:

 

Arranging these by series...

 

Air Power

This U.S. Air Force supported series made great use of vintage newsreel footage and was successfully distributed to schools by McGraw-Hill, with each show running 25 minutes approximately. Walter Cronkite jumped into this one right after the last episodes of You Are There (qv) were in the can, although a few of the former series weren't broadcast until this series had its run. I sense that Cronkite was more comfortable narrating actual news events preserved as they happened rather than recreated scenes involving actors. Prudential Insurance Co. sponsored both this and its superior successor Twentieth Century (qv), which also included a certain quota of aerial combat footage in its war episodes. Shown in order of broadcast here since there was some chronological, if not consistent, ordering of historical events.

CBS Reports

Not certain how many of these were distributed to classrooms but it appears that McGraw-Hill and, later, BFA handled quite a number of them in the sixties and seventies, followed by Carousel Films in the eighties and Films for the Humanities rounding up still more for the video market after the 16mm format was phased out. These included a few notorious shows like The Uncounted Enemy: A Vietnam Deception, which caused a huge ruckus with retired General William Westmoreland. They were surprisingly popular in schools despite being so push-button in their subject matter: poverty in American cities, segregation in northern states as well as the south, the Klan, the debate over religion in schools and even possible abortion rights a full eight years before Roe vs. Wade. While many still provide relevant viewing four to six decades later, an occasional one does show its age; case in point being The Homosexuals, with Mike Wallace coming off smug and condescending in his “at least I am hetero normal” attitude.

Fred W. Friendly was executive producer between 1959 and 1966 and pushed the envelope often with all that William S. Paley and network sponsors could stomach. Sometimes the shows aired without any commercial support when folks on Madison Avenue freaked out over the subject matter. Richard S. Salant took over after Friendly's abrupt departure, just as the series was being broadcast in “living color”, and he toned the series down a few notches. Nonetheless, key producer-directors like David Lowe, Jay McMullen and Perry Wolff would still keep it more provocative than most TV shows despite many schedule changes and controversies.

Most titles ran 50-55 minutes to fit the commercial hour formats, with exceptions indicated below. Initially shown at a rate of 13-15 per season, only seven programs were broadcast in 1980 and only two in 1983. A few sporadic programs continued through the '90s and were released later on VHS.

Some interviews are fascinating in regards to the mental state of the interviewed rather than their comments on the mental states of the men (not lesbians) they discuss. For example, one Albert Goldman is greatly concerned about homosexuals “dominating” the fashion industry and designing clothes that make women too masculine; you can only imagine how much women's lib impacted him a decade later. This was a notorious show that had CBS on edge, prompting a lot of editing and re-editing (with filming completed in July 1965). Films for the Humanities released it to DVD in 2007 as a historical relic. Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tu1r6igCODw

Conquest

Landmark science series, each black & white show running 25-27 minutes. Michael Sklar produced and Eric Sevareid was a key host. It appears that at least half of these were released on 16mm by McGraw-Hill and, later, Carousel Films to schools.

Of Black America

Presented in “living color” (apart from old vintage clips and the second title in the series is mostly that); six of the seven running an hour each with only Xerox sponsorship nods interrupting. The first show, co-written by future 60 Minutes Andy Rooney and hosted by a very blunt tell-it-like-it-is Bill Cosby, was a best-seller for BFA in schools throughout the 1970s due, in part, to it being one of the first documentaries to take on all of the racial stereotypes populating movies, radio and television during the previous six decades of mass culture. As would be the case many times later, “that cat named Griffith” and his silent film epic Birth Of A Nation get plenty of scorn; although the movie is curiously mis-dated 1918 here.

This Peter Wolff produced series was quite polarizing to TV viewers at the time but still received rather high ratings. The Heritage Of Slavery features reporter George Foster interviewing contented white South Carolinians bemoaning how life was so much easier when everybody knew their “place” without any acknowledgment of Foster's own skin tone. Portrait In Black And White posted what was current in public opinions that year regarding the integration of communities and schools; it too featured some very opinionated folk candidly talking. Body And Soul was a bit different in focusing on achievements in sports and music, with Harry Reasoner critiquing the unfairness of sports in the sixties (this show airing just before the Summer Olympics in Mexico City when “black power” was on full display) while Ray Charles hosts a more upbeat survey of such legends as Jimmy Rushing, Mahalia Jackson, Duke Ellington, Count Basie, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday, Dinah Washington and newer contemporary Aretha Franklin.

Young America Films distributed some of these academics on 16mm, all black & white 30 minutes each. This may have been the first CBS show distributed for school use during the 1954-55 school year, but I may need corrected on this.

“60 Minutes” segments

These vary in length, being originally part of hour long broadcasts. Color 16mm versions were put out by several distributors between 1968 and 1985. Of course, the show still broadcasts today as one of the longest running in prime-time and, for a brief period in the late eighties and early nineties, whole episodes were also sold on VHS. Back in the sixties and seventies, it was much more common to film “reports” and interviews with 16mm cameras even though the introductions by the hosts in front of their magazine-spread backdrops were shot on video. As a result, there isn't that much of a difference between the TV and classroom movie versions.

The Twentieth Century

All black & white, 25 minutes each except for the occasional hour special indicated. Walter Cronkite hosted these historical newsreel compilations, produced by Isaac Kleinerman (often serving as the executive) and Burton Benjamin. I listed a few directors and writers of importance involved (). Aside from the valuable vintage newsreel footage utilized, these wonderful crash-course history lessons were among the earliest of their kind to feature interviews with people recalling the events featured (a.k.a. Fritz Lang discussing his infamous meeting with Goebbels), something we take for granted today.

World War I

Produced by Isaac Kleinerman and John Sharnik, scripted by executive Burton Benjamin, narrated by movie star Robert Ryan and with impressive music by Morton Gold to boot, this spin-off series from Twentieth Century (qv) was made for the fiftieth anniversary of the conflict. Several companies distributed the individual black & white 22-25 minute shows for the 16mm market. These are listed in air date order. Many can be watched on YouTube but the DVD version will likely have better quality.

You Are There

This show may be viewed as silly camp today, but it was (for its time) a very creative docu-drama series involving actors recreating famous events and a “news correspondent” covering it as if it is happening today “live” with Walter Cronkite as host. Creator Goodman Ace launched this show for the listening audience as CBS Is There on radio starting July 14, 1947, making spectacular use of the advanced sound effects technology of the era... and one can be easily fooled War-of-the-Worlds style into thinking these events from too many decades and centuries past were happening as new. After the radio series bowed out on June 11, 1950, a revival began on TV three years later and, right away, some of the flaws in this concept became apparent: the actors were sporting period costumes while the you-are-there reporters were wearing 1950s clothes, in addition to some degree of stage-confinement that wasn't always realistic. Yet the show lasted a couple seasons with plenty of episodes for syndication and classroom use, courtesy of McGraw-Hill and Young America Films. (The 1971 color reboot was handled by BFA Educational Media.)

Initially presented live and sometimes preserved as “kinescopes”, the later episodes registered for copyright after January 1955 were filmed in the 35mm motion picture format. This was becoming the fashion mid-decade due to Hal Roach, Revue Studios, Desilu and the Hollywood majors like Walt Disney and Warner Brothers filming their shows as motion pictures. Produced by William Dozier, Ben Feiner and James Fonda, they still maintain considerable interest for modern viewers due to many before-they-were-famous performers such as Rod Steiger, Paul Newman, Joanne Woodward and even James Dean, although his performance is sadly out of circulation and potentially lost. They were also parodied often, particularly in cartoon form like Bugs Bunny & Elmer Fudd's Wideo Wabbit and were a possible inspiration for Mr. Peabody and Sherman in Rocky & His Friends (a.k.a. Rocky & Bullwinkle). All surviving black and white episodes run roughly 25 minutes long; those that I know or think are still available are indicated with an asterick. My guess is that all of the post-1955 episodes survive... somewhere.
