Free Film

So, with a wealth of material on the internet I thought it was time to point of some of the choicer material out there. There'll be a different selection each month and it'll range from features to shorts or charming little scraps. This month's choice:   

Quiz-Crime No. 2 (1944)

We're in the bargain basement of British cinema here. This is one of a series of six shorts challenging the viewer to solve two crimes given a series of clues presented by a detective. These sort of mini-problems were popular in newspapers of the period and this was an attempt to translate their appeal to film. This is not one of the glories of wartiem cinema but it has a certain rough charm.
