OLD VELVETEEN RABBIT MOVIE FROM THE 1970s

I'm trying to find a copy of a version of The Velveteen Rabbit that I saw in elementary school back in the 1970s. It was a live film, not animation. It was not very long, but it was the best version of The Velveteen Rabbit I have ever seen since. They showed it to us every year of elementary school it seemed and I cried every time. Does anyone have any information on this movie?

Thanks,
Trina M.

r u sure it was from the 70s?

the first one imdb has is from 1984

possibly a local production? for your area schools? they did that a lot where i was from...local public broadcast sometimes showed locally produced shows for educational purposes...

I think I know what you are talking about. I remember watching that in the late 70's. The version you are talking about was distributed by Lsb Productions for elementary schools in 1974. It was on 16mm and not VHS. Whether it was ever transferred to VHS I don't know. If imdb.com only has since 1984 my guess is no.

Maybe you could do a transfer to video.

transfer to video is expensive...especially from a 16mm print..you could easily pay on upwards of $75 per half hour of print to do that (your yellow pages should have some companies in your area that do that...most specialize in transfering wedding videos to vhs or vhs to dvd or foreign formats -- PAL -- to US formats). I checked it out when I had bought nearly 17 hours of film from England and found it would have cost me nearly $3K to get them transferred over to VHS. Kind of ridiculous since the whole purchase cost me only about $30 in total. They sit on my shelf now until I can find someone who's willing to do it for free.

You are aware that advertising on these boards is against policy and that this thread is over 7 years old, right?

I am not sure what you consider advertising... the person is asking how they can acquire this film.  I, today, am seeking the same information, and fortunately someone has been kind enough to respond to this "old" thread so I know where to search.  So far I have turned up nothing that I was looking for.
