Description

This is a promotional presentation from 1982, converted from a slide-cassette presentation. A little girl, played by Karla Fuqua (misspelled in the credits), interacts with a computer, played by Bob Ulrich. She seeks the "ideal town" for her family to live in. The computer evaluates several properties of a perfect town and determines that Hesston includes all of them, showing slides with examples of each.

Side label reads "Hesston Promotion (Original) 1982." Top Label reads "'Hesston, The Ideal Town' Promotional Slide Presentation. 2-8-82, Master Slides and Cassette Tape." Masking tape label stuck to inside of slide tray reads: Duane A Graham, [address and phone number]. Label on cassette reads "HESSTON: THE IDEAL CITY Sound-slide presentation."
