Rhythm and Motion (1940s)
This very strange film, apparently targeted to very young children, unfortunately has no opening credits; therefore, it is a “mystery production!!!” We here at ThinkStream Films love these mystery films as they are part of what makes the ephemeral film cannon fire so loudly and with such prominence in the underground world of stock footage! You figure it out for yourselves! It’s open season here at ThinkStream Films, where just about anything on celluloid is up for grabs!
The story? Inane. The little boy? Think a very early (and young) version of Forrest Gump. Check out those socks! The teacher? Quintessential “old maid” school marm!” See this as it was meant to be seen: watch it while under the influence. The producers apparently made it under such circumstances.
Note: The following clip was taken directly from the original 16mm print and has been edited to approximately half the film's original length.
