What was the propaganda purpose ?
22 October 2007 | by (london) – See all my reviews

This was one of the last films made by Humphrey Jennings for the Crown Film Unit before his untimely death.It is a rather curious film.One has to bear in mind that all films made under the aegis of the Crown Film Unit during World War 2 had a propaganda message.However this is far from easy to discern from this film.The only conclusion that i have come to is that it is to try and to explain why a song popularised by the Afika Corps should also have been adopted by the Eigth Army.In doing this it provides a set of lyrics which do not bear much comparison to the original.Its running time is an odd 29minutes so i would guess that it would have been difficult to fit into a standard cinema programme where the size of most shorts was 2 reels.In USA it was cut down to 21 minutes.All told one of the least satisfying films from Humphrey Jennings.
