MOTION PICTURE FILM
“ MONEY ON THE MOVE— THE FEDERAL RESERVE TODAY”

To the Principal Executive Officer
of the Member Bank Addressed:
A new educational motion picture entitled “ MONEY ON THE MOVE—The Federal
Reserve Today” is now available.
This 27-minute, 16 mm., color-sound film is designed to inform the general public
of the purposes, organization and operations of the Federal Reserve System. There are
scenes taken in each of the 12 Federal Reserve Districts and in Washington to illustrate
the diversified activities of the Federal Reserve System. The viewer is taken on a tour
of the Nation’s central banking system to see how its activities affect and serve the
national interest. It may be borrowed, free, by schools and colleges, clubs and community
groups, business, industry, farm and labor organizations and TV stations.
We think your bank would benefit by sponsoring showings of this film. It should
be of interest to high schools and colleges, luncheon and civic clubs, women’s clubs, bank
employees and others. If your city has a TV station, it might wish to program the film.
If your bank wishes to sponsor a presentation of the film, please write to our Bank and
Public Relations Department indicating the date or dates upon which you would like
to have it. There is enclosed a leaflet which describes the film and contains an order
blank for ordering it. As the number of prints is limited, it will be necessary to honor
requests in the order of their receipt; therefore, an alternate date should be indicated.
Member banks served by one of our branches should send their requests to the branch.
On the reverse of this letter, there is a list of other films available, without charge,
from this bank. We will be happy to send any of these films to your bank for your use
or for the use of any group interested in a visual education program.
Yours very truly,
Watrous H. Irons
President

DESCRIPTIONS OF FILMS
AVAILABLE AT THE
FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF DALLAS
1. THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM. A 16 mm., black and white sound
picture, running approximately 23 minutes. This film explains the purposes
and functions of the Federal Reserve System. It shows how the System,
growing naturally out of a national need, was devised to meet certain eco­
nomic conditions. The period from the money panic of 1907 through World
War II is covered, with emphasis on historical high spots in the System’s
development.
2. THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK AND YOU. A 16 mm., black and white,
sound motion picture film. This film presents a 30-minute story built around
the Federal Reserve System and what it means to the individual citizen as
a result of its relation to commercial banking, business, industry and
agriculture. We believe the film will be a valuable aid to students of eco­
nomics, money and banking, and other social studies in high schools, colleges
and universities.
3. YOUR MONEY’S WORTH. A 16 mm., colored, sound motion picture, which
takes 38 minutes for showing. The film presents graphically through the
use of flannel boards an explanation of inflation and deflation and their
causes together with several methods that can be used which, at least in
part, act as remedies. The film is considered to be of value as a college and
American Institute of Banking teaching aid, and also an instructive feature
for banking and business organizations.
4. YOU AND YOUR MONEY. A 16 mm., sound picture, running 1 2 ^ minutes.
This film is a considerably simplified version of “ Your Money’s Worth”
described above. In cartoon form, it traces the travels of a dollar bill, illus­
trating the relationship between the flow of spending and the flow of goods
and services.
5. A DAY AT THE FEDERAL RESERVE BANK OF CLEVELAND. A 16
mm., black and white sound picture, running 22 minutes. This film is con­
fined to the operations of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland. It describes
the departmental operations, and in some instances, speaks of the relation­
ship of commercial banks with the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland.

today
o n t h e m o v e — an informative
new color film—
takes you behind the
imposing walls of the nation’s Fed­
eral Reserve Banks to see how the
cash you use comes into circulation
. . . and is eventually withdrawn for
flaming destruction when worn out;
how your personal checks are pro­
cessed by the millions each day . . .
how widely diversified information is
collected for use in money and credit
decisions which affect us all. through
the camera’s eye you witness a rare
view of the Federal Open Market
Committee in Washington where vital
monetary policy for the nation is re­
viewed every three weeks, and the
SecuritiesTrading Room in New York
where some of the world’s most fas­
cinating finance is brought into play,
you’ll visit the headquarters of the
vast nationwide Federal Reserve tel­
egraphic network used for confiden­
tial communication and quick trans­
fer of large sums of money by the 12
District Banks, the 24 Branch Banks,
and the Board of Governors in Wash­
ington. fflo re than a million gov­
ernment checks every day . . . more
than a 100 billion dollars’ worth every
year are handled by the Federal Re­
serve Banks, acting as fiscal agents
for the Federal Government . . . pro­
cessing savings bonds . . . helping
the Government issue and redeem
its securities. See m o n e y o n t h e
m o v e for a close look at how the
Federal Reserve harmonizes con­
flicting interests of a free economy
to help maintain the nation’s eco­
nomic health and world leadership.
