A classic little Gem, which, for those of a certain age, will recall an era of late films screened just before closedown. Something to give people throughout the land a quick shiver before the anonymous announcer wished them a good night and, ironically, to sleep well.
It belongs to an era of Public Information Films and Late Call, when Late Night TV consisted of a short burst of tasteful stills shown to haunting music before the screen went black.

Well worth the seeking out- Excellent Structure & Acting.
