4-H Audio-Visual Directory

4-H Films, Audio and Video Recordings - The First 75 Years

Films documenting 4-H projects and events, and telling the personal stories of 4-H members, go back before the 1920s. Even at the earliest stages, these efforts provided a variety of purposes. Some simply were produced to promote the 4-H movement... to show the benefits of becoming a 4-H member. Others were educational or instructional, often centering in on a particular 4-H project area. And, still others were produced for sheer entertainment. Many of the films were produced on location. Some were even made by Hollywood! Regardless of its origin, nearly every film showed accomplishments of young people and how 4-H affected both the family and the community.

Films also often showed county, state and national 4-H events... the county fair, livestock expositions, the National 4-H Camp, National 4-H Conference and National 4-H Congress.

While the Extension Service, USDA and Extension in the states produced many films and audio recordings, the private sector was also heavily involved in 4-H audio-visual production from the very beginning.

Particularly in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, many promotional films and audio and video recordings were made at the national and state levels to promote 4-H - many of them making the use of celebrities endorsing the program. Examples included spots produced by Jimmy Stewart, Bob Hope, Johnnie Carson, Bill Cosby, Arthur Godfrey, Sugar Ray Leonard, Reba McEntire, Ernie Banks of the Chicago Cubs, Bart Starr of the Green Bay Packers and Johnny Unitas of the Baltimore Colts.

This directory provides information on many of these efforts, however there are other known films, audio and video recordings on which we have little or no information... and, probably still others that have not come to our attention.

Title:Partners
Release Date:1921
Description:In 1921 a group of businessmen from South St. Paul and St. Paul (MN), enthusiastic over successful 4-H junior livestock shows and 4-H programs at the state fair, sponsored a plan to make a good 4-H club film. The venture was successful and the film did very much to create new interest in the 4-H plan. The general club part of the film was made in Blue Earth county with M. H. Coe, then county 4-H club agent, and Miss Florence Lang, a 4-H girl and later a successful extension agent, as leading characters. A large portion of the filming was done at the junior livestock show at St. Paul that year. The result was a very good picture of 4-H work and carried a very interesting story. The title, "Partners," was taken from the fundamental principle of 4-H work, partnership in the home. Five copies were made at a total cost of $4,000. This film was shown all throughthe state for several years. (T. A. Erickson, State 4-H Leader, Minnesota)

Title:So Dear to My Heart
Release Date:1948
Description:Set in early 20th century Indiana (in 1903), So Dear to My Heart tells the tale of Jeremiah Kincaid (Bobby Driscoll) and his quest to raise his `champion' lamb, Danny (named for the famed race horse, Dan Patch, who is also portrayed in the film). Jeremiah's dream of showing Danny at the Pike County Fair and win a blue ribbon must overcome the obstinate objections of his loving, yet strict, grandmother Granny (Beulah Bondi). Jeremiah's confidant, Uncle Hiram (Burl Ives), is the boy's steady ally. Obviously, 4-H is not mentioned in the film as the "4-H" term was not yet in use in 1903; however, the story has a close relationship to the stories of thousands of boys and girls across the country during that period who were striving to better themselves… sometimes having a hard time to convince their parents of how to do things differently. The fact that the film was first released in Chicago on November 29, 1948, coinsiding with the opening of National 4-H Congress, and the film was heavily advertised through the National 4-H News, indicates the strong identification that 4-H and RKO had for tying the two together. Like 1946's Song of the South, the film combined animation and live action. It was based on the Sterling North book, Midnight and Jeremiah.
Cast:Bobby Driscoll, Luana Patten, Beulah Bondik and Burl Ives.

Other:Awards: The film was nominated for the Academy Award for Best Original Song for Burl Ives's version of the English folk song "Lavendar Blue," but lost to "Baby, It's Cold Outside" from Neptune's Daughter. Available for purchase on VHS.

Like many, Farmer John felt he was not doing enough and the story of how his thinking was clarified is the story of the film. Hollywood-produced, the film is documentary in nature. It deals with the heartbreaks and triumphs of a typical American family whose "feet are in the furrow." Its purpose is to help the war effort with emphasis upon food production and to aid the farmer by calling attention to the abundance of scientific methods and equipment at his command.

Title:The Green Promise
Release Date:1949
Description:"The Green Promise" tells about a farm family made up of a father and his four motherless children and their effort to wrest a livelihood from the soil. It is a simple, uncomplicated story of the struggle of lthe nation's youth in the farm areas to better their lot through scientific, progressive methods and their final victory in the battle to overcome the ingrained prejudices of the older generation against modern ideas. The part of the father is played by that incomparable actor Walter Brennan, the three-time Academy Award winner. The father loves his children and tries to bring them up properly, according to his lights, but he refuses to give in to the progressive 4-H ideas about improved methods of farming and scoffs at their efforts to apply "book learning" to their farm work. It takes a minor disaster to convince him that there might be something to science after all. Jeanne La Duke, a 10-year-old 4-H club girl from Mount Vernon, Indiana, was selected from among 12,000 4-H youngsters to play a featured role in the picture.
Cast:Child stars Natalie Wood and Bobby Ellis, along with Marguerite Chapman, Walter Brennan and Robert Paige, Milburn Stone, Jeanne LuDuke, Ted Donaldson.. William D. Russell was the director.
Producer:Glenn McCarthy Productions.
Distribution:R-K-O Radio Pictures
Funding Source:Glenn McCarthy, a flamboyant oilman from Houston.
Run Time:93 minutes
Formats:Sound, black and white.
Purpose:Over a period of years picture fans abroad had slowly gained the impression that America is a land of flippant youth, easy money and café society, a country where crime is a general thing and the gangster rules supreme. Thoughtful Americans had been watching this development with great apprehension, but, unfortunately, their just warnings against certain types of films had been like a cry in the wilderness. It was with the idea of bringing to the world a picture of the real America, of the true greatness of this country and of the nature and character of the people who made it great that Glenn McCarthy Productions chose "The Great Promise" as the initial film of the newly-formed company, with Marguerite Chapman, Walter Brennen and Robert Paige in the star roles. "The Green Promise" is a saga of America's youth, a story of the great 4-H organization which has done so much toward making this country the most powerful among the nations of the earth.
Other:"The Green Promise" had it's initial premiere at the final banquet of the 1948 National 4-H Congress with some of the film's stars and Glenn McCarthy, the backer of the film, in attendance.
