This widescreen film documents the work and organisation involved in staging the York Mystery Plays of 1973. The film is a great homage to the widescreen road-show presentations of the 50s, 60s and 70s with introductory music, prologue and intermission.
Made in 1929, this unique film provides an example of Rowntree’s innovate approach to marketing chocolate. Lasting just over six minutes, the commercial uses sound and animation to promote the delicious flavour of York Milk Bar through a series of funny incidents staring Mr. York. It is the first animated advertisement to be made with synchronised sound.
This is a film made by George Younger and David Dean showing a projectionist at work.
