  • Description

    Thought to be Selected Originals from late 1940s material.

    A short trailer film encouraging people to address and pack their parcels correctly.

    VS of Post Office sorting depot full of parcels. MS of postal worker checking parcels - one has an unreadable address, one is a large smelly fish in a box, one holds a sharp knife, one is full of ink bottles and falls apart. They all fall apart and create extra work for the post man.

    End title reads: "Pack Your Parcels Carefully".

    The worker looking at the parcels is a young Clive Dunn. I used this in a BBC show celebrating his life when he died a few years ago, and this appearance had been recorded by the BFI.
