“Hearts & Stars” was produced for the Hooven & Allison Company of Xenia, Ohio, in
the 1940's. The 40-minute film features ropemaking footage from inside the H&A.
Nearly forgotten for over 50 years, the 16mm film reel was discovered in Bill Hagenbuch’s
basement during the making of “Ropewalk”. Numerous film clips are included in “Ropewalk:
A Cordage Engineer’s Journey Through History”.
