To star in a sound and color film presentation that will run continuously in the Kodak pavilion, officials selected Kokomo and Kokomo, Jr., chimps whose antics delighted viewers of N.B.C.'s "Today" show for two years and who now are featured daily on television in the entertainment capital of the world, New York, and throughout Canada and other countries.
Kodak cameramen worked with the chimps for five days to record on Eastman Color Film the chimps' capers in amusing situation that confront the camera of 20-year-old model Bianca Benedict.
To see and record the results, come to the Fair ...
and bring your camera.
