My Dog Sam
Dear Abby, I too was picked on when I was a child and I too turned to our dog Queenie. She always gave me love and she always listened. Bless you.
I have become a big fan of www.archive.org, where I listen to a lot of old-time radio shows while working.
Today when I went to the site, there was a link to a video - "A Visit from Santa" - from 1963. It's about 12 minutes long, and obviously from that era where television was "new." No special effects (from the bits I have watched), but definitely fun if you are into the vintage or history of Christmas.
Just looking at the thumbnails, this looks like something that may have been released by Castle Films or Official Films a similar company for the home movie market. Some were original; many were one-reel abridgements of feature-length movies. For example, Castle Films issued a 10-minute abridgement of Alastair Sim's "Scrooge," as well as a few Christmas carol reels and children's reels (e.g., "The Night Before Christmas," "Howdy Doody's Christmas," etc.). I could run this past my husband and ask him if he can identify it.
