Description

This promotional film presents the Recomp I computer, from North American Aviation, and is narrated by Sterling Holloway. The film focuses on the relative convenience of the Recomp I, an early portable computer ("smaller than a baby's playpen - less than 6 square feet!"). The second portion of the film presents the Harvard University Mark I, Mark II, and Mark IV stored-program computers. Both portions of the film contain both animation and live-action segments.
