    I really liked this film, the editing had the potential of being distracting, but was the exact opposite. I really enjoyed the mix of still photos, archival footage, and documents.

    Due to two strip technicolor only showing reds and greens filmmakers had to figure out how to showcase the colors in the best way, hence why there are a few shorts that incorporate hell as the setting. It’s shorts like these though that make me understand why people wanted some type of film regulation in order. I wonder what this was shown before and how many letters of complaint they got from the pearl-clutchers in the audience. Personally, I like…
