Star Item
  • Description

    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    A short trailer film encouraging people to save paper - Terry-Thomas stars.

    A woman sits in a shop and shop assistant (played by Terry-Thomas) serves her. He fills her pocket with rice and hangs meat and sausages around her neck - it appears that he is trying to save paper bags. He fills her hat with something and then pops an egg into her mouth. The shopper then leaves.

    Terry-Thomas then turns to the camera and warns us that this is what could happen if we don't save paper.

    End title reads: "Save Paper For Food Cartons".
