          The collection consists of films used in an itinerant picture show that toured through rural Saskatchewan, particularly through Ukrainian communities around Regina, during the 1930s-50s. The films include episodes of popular series such as Tarzan of the Apes, Dick Tracy, Krazy Kat, and Hopalong Cassidy; full-length genre films including Westerns and melodramas; comedy shorts; compilations of trailers for Hollywood features; episodes of Canadian Movietone News for 1950-51; a documentary about Inuit life in the 1940s; and two feature-length Ukrainian films that were made in North America. Both of these films were produced by Ukrainian-Canadian Vasile Avramenko. The first is entitled Cossacks in Exile (Zaporozhets za dunaem) (Edgar L. Ulmer, 1938), while the second is entitled Marusia (Leo Bulgakov, 1938). These films are in the Ukrainian language with English subtitles, were specifically made for the expatriate Ukrainian community in North America, and are rare examples of Ukrainian commercial filmmaking in North America.

          Many of the films are fragments of larger works, but it is unclear if the complete films were ever shown as part of the travelling picture show.

          This amateur film features the arrival in Victoria, BC of a team in the 1922 “Pathfinder Trek: Edmonton to Victoria via Jasper Highway.” The trek was instigated at the behest of the Edmonton Automobile and Good Roads Association, which was hoping to create a northern route to the BC coast via the Yellowhead Pass. The Association offered a gold medal for the team who could first drive a car from Edmonton to Victoria via the Jasper route. Two teams entered the race, the first consisting of Charles Neimeyer and Frank Silverthorne, employees of Lines Motors of Edmonton, who drove an Ford Overland Four, and the second consisting of George F. Gordon and J.E. Sims, who drove a Ford Model T pickup. The Overland team left Edmonton on 17 June 1922 and the Model T team left Edmonton on 22 June 1922. Both teams arrived in Victoria on 4 July 1922 but the Model T team benefitted from the rudimentary road construction that the Overland team had previously improvised on its way and arrived in Victoria ahead of its opponents.

          The film, which is dated as 1939 and must be a copy of original footage from 1922, depicts the Overland team in Victoria along with unrelated footage of several sporting activities such as diving and golf.
