Screenonline in December

Filed under: Screenonline — Michael @ 12:35 pm

BFI Screenonline has just updated its homepage, the main feature showcasing the British short films of silhouette animator Lotte Reiniger. I wrote pieces on The Tocher (1938), The H.P.O. (1938), Aladdin and the Magic Lamp (1953) and The Frog Prince (1954).

I also wrote about a striking Topical Budget newsreel from 1923, poking fun at Germany’s declining economy (this was mere weeks before hyperinflation would devastate it).
