American Airlines - "California" (Commercial, 1965)

Here's a commercial for American Airlines, which starts off with a re-creation of a turn-of-the-century train robbery, then segues from that to the various sights of California including the dolphins of Marineland, San Francisco's Chinatown, night skyline, Mission Hill, cable cars, a pelican at the bay, Big Sur, and the infamous freeways. Ends with a shot of a four-engine Boeing 707 touching down as part of their "Royal Coachman" service.

Ok, try it now - might have to clear your cache and reload to make sure you're getting the new video file.

VintageCanada - are you able to play other recent clips like the Donahue one? I am making them all Mp4 clips now, in a higher resolution too, but the player seems to be handling it. Still don't have tablet or smartphone play ability but we're working on that too.

Maybe this guy is him? Looks like his film production work started in 1976 and maybe this commercial demo got him the job!

At the end of the Shell spot, that looks like the Screen Gems residential street. And of course that's Paul Frees as the Pillsbury Doughboy.

The two repeats of this film on ABC aired under the title "Love Trap."
