  • Description

    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    A short animated trailer film explaining that "Extra Effort Now Means Better Living Sooner".

    Hands appear on the screen. The magic hands operate a machine producing boxes with war production stamped on them. The hands now appear tired (it is the end of the war). A packet of cigarettes appear and lots of hands grab them, a sign appears to say there are no cigarettes - the tired hands are left with nothing. The hands start back to work - this time the boxes are stamped Peace Production. The cartoon shows what goods are being imported and what the hands have to match in output. The hands rub together. The voiceover reminds us that 'Output Will Do It". The hands go back to working even faster.

    End title reads: "Extra Effort Now Means Better Living Sooner".
