It's pretty rare to find a color film from the 1940s. It's even more rare to find one about Atlantic City.

This film, now shared on video takes a look at how Atlantic City went from "an obscure fishing village" to a "great resort of the world."

The video was recently posted on YouTube by Old West Magazine.
