| Probably one of Ranks pet projects
This film was made by Gaumont British Instructional in 1938,the same year as the collapse of the company.It was not released till December 1939Rank,under his then name of General Film Distributors purchased most of the assets of the company,including this film.This probably inspired him on to his Thought For The Day series of short films which,thankfully,were only shown in Odeons on a Sunday.They like this film all had a moral to tell.I do tend to object to this type of film as I dislike being preached to when I am paying to be entertained.It is odd that this film has very little by way of credits.Didn't the participants want people to know?
