“Fabricating Processes,” Alcan 16mm Film Catalogue (Montreal: Aluminum Company of Canada, Limited: c.1960), 6.
“No other metal can be obtained in as many different forms as aluminum and in this film you see it cast into ingots, rolled into bar and rod, drawn into wire, and stranded into cable. Sheet, plate and foil are produced in the blooming and structural mills. Aluminum is extruded into useful, ornamental forms and drawn into tubing. The making of sand, die and permanent moulds castings is shown, as is the manufacture of a forged aluminum propeller blade."
