The picture shows a view of this 1938 The News Parade of The Year Castle 8mm Movie Film. The News Parade of The Year Castle Movie Films were made from 1938 to 1973 and this is the very first year! The movie was found hidden away in the box that is pictured. The box is included. It is a Castle Films cartoon box for ''KIKO THE KANGAROO in THE BIG FIGHT''. The black & white film fills the 5'' reel it is on. The movie is similar to the news reels you would have see in the movie theatres in the 1940s. We don't have an 8mm projector set up so we did not play the movie, but manually looking at it the film appears to be in excellent condition. There is no leader film section. It is on a metal reel that has some rusting but it doesn't appear to have affected the film. The reel should be changed though. The box is a bonus. It has wear and spotting as pictured. Here is some background reference information on Castle Films:

Castle Films
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Castle Films was a home movie distributor founded by Eugene W. Castle in 1924, primarily to handle business and advertising films. In 1936, Castle branched out into the 8mm and 16mm home movies, buying old theatrical films for home use. Castle's first home movie was a newsreel of the Hindenburg explosion. In 1937, Castle launched his ''News Parade'' series, a year in review newsreel; travelogues followed in 1938. Castle also released sports films, animal adventures, and ''old time movies.'' Castle obtained home movie rights to cartoons from several animation studios, including Terrytoons (1938), Ub Iwerks (1941), and Walter Lantz (1947). In 1947, Universal Pictures purchased a majority stake in Castle Films. Castle subsequently became a Universal subsidiary, drawing upon the studio's library of vintage films (with Abbott and Costello, W. C. Fields, Boris Karloff, James Stewart, etc.). Castle Films changed its name to Universal 8 in 1977, and the era of home video brought an end to Universal's home movie enterprise. The complete inventory of Castle Films (more than 1000 titles over 40 years) is listed in Scott MacGillivray's book Castle Films: A Hobbyist's Guide, ISBN 0-595-32491-6.

This film has the following list of titles and some film footage for each:
