STK-ID 76679

FI12839.014 16mm print of C’EST L’AVIRON (somewhat scratched) and EN PASSANT in good condition. There is a second roll – a very wrinkled print of COME TO THE FAIR in colour. This is the film which is basically animated camera moves with some minimal animation. The film is in two parts we see the action accompanied by the male singers then a version also with the male singers but with a creeper of the words so that the live audience could sing along, as was the habit in those long gone innocent days. I (Don McWilliams) remember cringing as a boy when these items came up in my local cinema.
