Star Item
  • Description

    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    A Short Trailer film encouraging people to wrap their parcels correctly.

    A stunt car is driven over a ramp - it crashes and rolls. The film is then run backwards.

    A young woman slides down a slide into a swimming pool. The film then runs backwards.

    CU a hand picks out a banana from a fruit bowl. It is peeled and a man then begins to eat it. The film is then run backwards.

    MS a man throws eggs against the wall. They smash. The film is run backwards and the eggs return to his hand.

    MS a man stands in a doorway. He is presented with a soggy and torn looking parcel by a Postman.

    CU hands wrapping eggs carefully in paper before packing them safely in a tin box.

    CU of properly packed parcel - 'Eggs With Care' is written on it.

    Possibly connected with 49/62 - MD.
