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.

Visible Woman, The

Date produced: 1964

Filmmaker(s):

Franklin W. Warwick

Description:

"The Visible Woman is an attractive little package about a woman who tries to construct a visible woman. Doesn't sound like much of a theme, does it? But with a parallel in counterpoint between herself and her son, the injection of a cat that at times steals the show, and a real twist at the end, this well lighted and well photographed little gem is one you'll remember for quite a spell. Probably its finest feature is its editing - great" PSA Journal, Sept. 1964, 51.

Visited, The

Date produced: 1963

Filmmaker(s):

John Riley

Description:

"It is a late fall day, blustery and bleak, just before the first snow. The visit by the Angel of Death is heralded by the blowing leaves and the lonesome cry of the starlings.

This highly imaginative film by John Riley was awarded the MPD Student film Award" PSA Journal, Oct. 1963, 41.
