• Short Summary

    Trailer about rationing use of gas and electricity, starring Naughton Wayne.

  • Description

    Title reads: "M of I - Government Official".

    Ministry of Information trailer about rationing use of gas and electricity.

    Various shots of comic actor / film star Naughton Wayne giving very boring speech about rationing fuel to empty church hall, at the back sits a man in uniform (caretaker or night-watchman?). The man yawns and gets up while Wayne is still speaking and switches of the light as he leaves. Wayne has to stumble out of hall holding a torch.

    End title (written on blackboard): "Gas & Electricity are made from Coal - Don't waste them!"

    NB: item part of Gazette issue 42/2.
