Description

This film is a short advertisement for the Spero car ferry.  The ferry ran along the Ellerman’s Wilson Line from Hull to Zeebrugge in Belgium.

The film opens with a man sitting at a table in a bar and making eyes at an attractive woman who walks past as his wine glass is refilled by a waiter.  The voiceover explains that the ferry takes thousands on mini-cruises from Hull to Zeebrugge in Belgium.  The woman walks over and kisses her husband whilst the seated man exclaims, ‘some car ferry!’  The final shot of the advert shows the ship as it departs from the dock at sunset. 

Closing title:  ‘Spero, with or without your car.’  ‘Ellerman’s Wilson Line’
