• Short Summary

    M of I trailer asking encouraging people to salvage paper, includes actor playing Hitler.

  • Description

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

    Ministry of Information trailer asking people to help war effort by collecting waste paper - Paper Chase saves paper.

    Actor playing Adolf Hitler dressed as decorator. He makes speech to camera in comedy German. He then pastes up a sign - "New Order" - over map of Europe.

    Various shots showing waste paper being collected, shredded and pulped, intercut with shots of what the paper is made into: shell cases, gear wheels, aeroplanes and cartridge wads.

    Man in office making big pile of waste paper, including a big book and a small bus ticket.

    Various shots Hitler hanging wallpaper, he slips and hangs himself (sounds gruesome - actually quite funny!)

    End title reads: "All the paper you can spare goes to Hitler - by air".

    NB: item part of Gazette issue 43/74.
