1944-46

Description:

From a film studio set in Bombay decked out to look like a ‘mess room’, men serving in India send personal messages home to their loved ones in and around Manchester. The film opens with two similar-looking men who suspend their game of darts to introduce the first contributors. Further set piece techniques are used around the set to introduce more groups of callers. Ends with the men picking up their hats and leaving the room, saying their personal goodbyes, as the gramophone plays ‘I’ll be Seeing You’.
