Your Last Act (1941)

*** (out of 4)

Before High Noon...

Fred Zinnemann directed this Passing Parade short about last wills written by people and how some of stupid while others have meaning. We see various wills written and how they can be used to help people or hurt them. With Zinnemann directing this short features some higher quality than you'd normally expect and runs well during its short running time.

If you're interested in seeing this film then keep your eyes open for it on Turner Classic Movies.
