Storyline

An "extra" shown in two parts at the movie theater, before and after a feature: part one gives the clues to six words in a crossword puzzle, part two gives the answers. In addition to the visual clues, which are clips of a party, an Asian country, a European city, table games, winter, and bullfighting, there are montages of street scenes and spinning objects. A simple cartoon character, Mr. Rebus, walks the audience through the clues, and title cards encourage the participation of the theatergoers. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Although created for German cinema audiences, the version which appears on the Kino Video 'Avant Garde 2: Experimental Cinema 1928-1954' DVD set has been adapted for English-speaking audiences. This 'rebus' film is a visual crossword puzzle which was shown in two parts. In the first 10-minute segment, the half-dozen clues are presented through both vivid animation bits as well as film clips derived from current newsreels. There is even a pause to allow the audience to bring out their pencils and paper which the average moviegoer was assumed to be carrying on his/her person. Then a separate short film was shown before the Rebus Film returned for a 5-minute wrap-up, in which the solutions are shown one by one and the viewers can congratulate themselves on their cleverness.
