| One Hundred Ten Thousand Pounds of Rope
That's enough rope to hang everyone who had a hand in making this dull MGM short subject about all the raw materials, art objects, baby elephants and effort that MGM put into in producing 1939's slate of movies. First they show you the object, then they show clips of the stars, then the titles they will be offering their audiences.

It's a typical short to hype the studio and its product, like the modern advertisements that announce the picture being shilled is from the studio who brought you some other movie -- or occasionally, they share the same caterer. Then as now, one might go to see the work of a particular star or even director, but even when this short was shown at a Loew's theater (the same company as MGM, back then), it might be shown after a show featuring a picture from some other studio.
