Kodak Movie Cameras - An American Classic

On October 4th, 1959, in Kansas City, Missouri, Elka Camera was having an Out They Go at Ridiculous Prices sale on the 1958 and early 1959 models of various cameras and projectors. Included in that Eisenhower era blow out sale was a Kodak Brownie Movie Kit, with an 8mm camera sporting a 13mm f2.3 lens, model 77T. Also included was a two lamp light bar complete with bulbs.

I doubt if this particular camera was sold at that store, but if it had been it would have been reduced from $39.95 to the ridiculously low price of $14.98. And it would looked just like this (only new).
