Wartime Republic Propaganda Programmer
13 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

This Republic programmer mainly set in a British aircraft factory has a largely British cast that pitch in gamely and a plot that anticipates the British 'Millions Like Us', released a few months later. The stress on doing your bit to "manufacture those grey hairs for that nasty man in Germany", as well as a couple of sequences sternly stressing the need to observe health and safety regulations to the letter makes it feel like a public information film, sweetened with frequent songs, including a duet between J.Pat O'Malley and Elsa Lanchester which marks one of Elsa's final film appearances in a youthful role before she became typecast as middle-aged (and then elderly) eccentrics.
