For Good Living

In 1937 the Los Angeles Brewing Company was featured in a short sales film called "For Good Living."  The B&W silent movie was designed to sell Brown Derby Beer which was the store brand for Safeway grocery stores.  The scenes from the film below show the Los Angeles Brewery, featured as my March 2005 Can of the Month!
