Wow - I thought everyone had long forgotten the Mutual of Omaha Film
on Philmont. But ....
Corrections here please .
The Mutual of Omaha Wild Kingdom show "The Philmont" trail was made
in 1964.. Not the 50's.
There is one good reason that I know. I am in it!!
As a 14 year old member of the exploring post that made the film - Do
I have stories I can tell about that!.
It is my understanding that Philmont stoped showing that film because
of its condition. However, a good copy was obtained from the Post
and moved to VHS version. (a copy of which I have personnal). In
fact I helped in getting the new copies made.
If anyone wants the inside of that film let me know.
