Date produced: 1935

Filmmaker(s):

G. H. Hesketh

Description:

"'Slum Clearance' was in 8mm. It was a record of the tearing down of tenement houses of the old type and showing them replaced with modern apartment buildings. Mighty interesting characters were shown, occupants of the slum tenements, children, etc. A very colorful sequence was built up in the early part of the picture. The latter part of the film is given over to the new homes and to suburban homes where the more fortunate of the slum dwellers moved. A fine document and an interesting picture."

Description:

"Almost every day of the year some 10 trawlers set out from the twin ports of Grimby and Hull, England, for the Arctic fishing grounds to return three weeks later with their cargo of deep sea fish. This film is a record of one such voyage with sound effects recorded on location. This will generate a nostalgic effervescence for those lovers of deep sea fishing and all will wish to join in the adventure without having to share in the work and inconvenience. The film moves with interest and excitement, a treat for all" PSA Journal, Oct. 1961, 47.


Village by the Sea, A

Date produced: 1934

Filmmaker(s):

A. Scott Moorhouse

Description:

"When you go to England this summer, and are looking for attractive color material, take a tip from Alan Moorhouse, ACL, of Toronto, as exemplified in his charming reel, A Village by the Sea. Running 400 feet of delightful Kodachrome, it tells a simple genre story of village life in Cornwall, down at the southwest tip of England. Here, streets and structures date from centuries back and the country folk still wrest their simple living from fish trawling in the cold, gray Channel waters. Mr. Moorhouse has caught a deal of this physical and spiritual color in his one reel film." Movie Makers, July 1936, 278.

"A. Scott Moorhouse of Toronto, Ontario, entered a combination black and white and Kodachrome subject in 'Village by the Sea.' This picture went very far in the finals and is highly deserving of the honorable mention it receives." American Cinematographer, Feb. 1936, 73.


Moods of Nature

Date produced: 1934

Filmmaker(s):

Paul Burnford

Description:

"'Moods of Nature' by Paul Brunford, recently won a prize in the Institute of Amateur Cinematographers' contest in England. Not only does Brunford show a fine sense of rhythm, but a keen eye for composition and a splendid sense of cutting and dramatic values in nature. This picture merely deals with a storm arising and then subsiding. Brunford uses both water and earth to show this. The smashing waves, bending trees and waving wheatfields combine to create his drama. His photography however, is something for which he is to be especially congratulated." American Cinematographer, Jan. 1936, 24.
