• Short Summary

    Ministry of Information cartoon encouraging recycling of bus tickets for war effort.

  • Description

    Title reads: "M of I - government official".

    Ticket's dream - trailer.

    Cartoon showing bus ticket lying idle on bus seat. The ticket starts to dream about being something else - a butterfly and then a bird. As the ticket is "very up-to-date", it goes on to dream of the things that bus tickets can do to help the war effort. We see the cartoon ticket being used to make wads for rifle cartridges. One of the cartridges is fired into an animated swastika that deflates. C/U of the ticket covered in mud and discarded. Panning shot of lots of tickets. Narrator says "If all the 3,000 million tickets issued in London every day were saved, they would provide the cartridge wads for eight million fighter sorties".

    End title reads: "Let your ticket help to fight".

    Note: Ministry of Information film.
