Nice Passing Parade Entry
4 June 2010 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

Trifles of Importance (1940)

*** (out of 4)

Nice entry in John Nesbitt's Passing Parade series. This one here looks at small trifles and their larger than normal meanings. First up is how the number seven helps a student who was kicked out of college after his was falsely accused of theft. The second story talks about the doodling and how some psychiatrist look at it. The third and final story talks about men's clothing and why our outfits have certain looks to them. Overall this is another good entry in the series as the first and last stories are certainly the highlights. The middle one is mildly interesting as we get to see some doodles from the likes of Gable, Rooney and Turner. The first story works pretty good as a mystery, although you could ask yourself how certain things are really pulled off. The third story tells all sorts of history like why slits are on the back of coats, how buttons were put on sleeves and why the bottom button of a vest is left open. Fans of the series will certainly want to check this out as with those who have 9-minutes to kill.
