Reality cine


Another film night, and Allan gave us more vintage cine film to enjoy, this time of the various railways in the Isle of Man. Much has changed between then and now, but the railways possibly less than most, and it was interesting to compare current operations with that in past times. And just for variety, Allan finished off with a short film of a mysterious and slightly sinister character, depicting social life in probably Germany in probably the 1930s. Just where, when and what was uncertain, but a number of very helpful suggestions were made, such as an 'At home with the Brauns' documentary, early anti-smoking propaganda, or my favourite, a spy training film.
