Very Slow Lecture on Spiritualism
7 March 2013 | by See all my reviews

I awarded this film 6/10, whose title was "Passing Clouds" on www.youtube.com.I have to agree with another reviewer that it was produced at a funereal pace and Vera Lindsay who played Diana Hilton spoke her lines in a very slow hypnotic fashion that I too found myself nodding off.That is a pity as this was my first viewing of this rare 1941 film.Again I have to agree that with Britain suffering at the height of "The Blitz" in 1941 and with people losing loved ones, there was the feeling that the producers wanted to invoke some comfort for the survivors left behind by the recently deceased.Personally I would have thought that a good comedy would have been more apt, to raise Britain's morale.At least there was a comic Irish gardener dispensing his home grown philosophy.
