I've tried looking at the National Archives and can't find the exact title I'm after. I've found one cite in WorldCat but it too isn't quite what I'm lookging for. Someone here is trying to locate a 1940ish 16mm film release from the Federal Housing Administration entitled "Houses of Today". That's all I know. I found a 1934, 1939 FHA title, "Own a modern livable home..." but user says nope, that's not what they're after.

Does anyone know about some ephemeral films archive somewhere? Seems like there's gotta be some source of titles for work like Rick Prelinger does with old 16mm and that such an archive would likely include many gov pubs.

Thanks, again in advance, for any suggestions.
