  • Description

    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    A short trailer film urging skilled workers to postpone their retirement.

    People sitting around the table singing 'Happy Birthday' to elderly man with cake in front of him. Man blows the candles, they applaud. Close up shot of the birthday man's face. He is 65 and does not have to work more - voiceover says. Follows succession of shots from steel factory - presumably the man worked there. 'Internal monologue' suggests that country still needs skilled workers and urges the man not to retire. Voice off screen says - let's drink for happy retirement. The man rises from chair and reacts - he will not retire. End title reads "Older workers are still wanted in their jobs".

    Possibly connected with 48/93 - MD. Possibly in tin marked UNSO 43.
