  • Description

    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    A short animated trailer film advising people to address their letters correctly.

    A small animated character appears out of a pinball machine. He asks 'Do you know how to win this game?'. He leaps onto a post box and then shows us that to win we have to address our letters correctly.

    The character addresses his letter and posts it in the box. The letter bounces around the pinball table until it reaches its correct destination - Plymouth. The machine lights up in victory.

    Another letter is posted and it bounces around the table unable to find its destination, Finally it drops out of whole in the table. The character readdresses and reposts it. The letter now reaches its destination in Edinburgh.

    The little character jumps back to the pinball table and we see lots of letters being posted and bouncing around the machine. The character advises us to 'Address Your Letters Correctly" and then his body and head turn into the initials GPO - General Post Office.

    Possibly connected with 49/98 - MD.
