Crop And Save
From the Four Corners (1942)
Updating Peter Andres' review
The film is available in its entirety online at the Imperial War Museum.
Unfortunately, the ownership watermark is placed annoyingly high on the frame and is there throughout the short, but it's the only place online I've been able to find it after several years of on-and-off searching. I only saw it once or twice years ago, and it's better than I remember. Mr. Howard does a fine job with a cursory history of England and her empire, centered on London, from Alfred the Great to the American Revolution, and the explorers she sent out "To the the Four Corners" as it were. The private soldiers were also quite good. They were a little stiff, but most professional actors of the time weren't as naturalistic as we expect. They were real soldiers playing, I assume, themselves.
Well worth 15 minutes of your time.
