"Refreshment Through the Years"

Text from PeriscopeFilm - YouTube

Created in 1939, "Refreshment Through the Years" is a corporate history of the Coca-Cola Company produced by the Jam Handy Organization. This film was the very first Technicolor industrial film ever produced. This account of the invention of Coke by John Pemberton through its growth in popularity to become the most popular soft drink in history — produced in huge quantities on an assembly line and supported by enormous distribution chains -- was shown at the 1939 World's Fair in New York, and then to audiences around the United States.
