Fortuna No. 239 Slides!

Something a bit different today before we get into the 1964 slides... here's a YouTube video I created of the entire Fortuna No. 239 slide set! Just compare these to what Kenner was doing in the 1960s... these are very sparse on text, and the text is set in pretty much random places... if you thought the Kenner adaptations of classics was really cut and dried, check these out! I'm especially amused at how they cut to the end without really resolving the plot's conflict first!
