John I can understand your feelings about this. Those peeler films were apparently put up there with permission of his family (see below). I'm sure the National Geographic and Art of potter films are not used with permission though. If old, dated films like these aren't properly preserved and transferred to digital then they will fall into decay and be lost forever. Some things just won't be reissued for various reasons. I'm still looking for the Village Potters of Onda.
Here is another one featuring some great footage of a very youthful Warren Mackenzie. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVsWbI5FUUA "After Mr. Peeler passed away I helped Mrs. Peeler transfer them to digital format and put them on here for anyone to use. They were once the most used ceramic educational films in the western world. They are public domain so if you want to download them and edit out the music is OK by us. Wagoner Pottery"
I actually helped a bit with that Peeler project.
"Art of the Potter" is and was held by Phoenix Films educational film library. For institutional use, "Art of the Potter" costs many hundreds of bucks ($400+ last I checked). Steven Branfman and I many years ago tracked down and arranged to get "Art of the Potter" available for "personal use" for more like $70. Both Sperry's "Village Potters of Onda" and "Art of the Potter" can be had from Steven Branfman's Potters Shop bookstore... last I checked.
