Handkerchief Drill (1949) - ickleReview (cinema)

Amusing one-minute short public information film produced by the British government's Ministry of Health to encourage its citizens to use handkerchiefs when sneezing. In the style of Mr Cholmondley-Warner. This black and white film has recently been restored by the BFI and is being screened before performances of The History Boys.

Nugget: surely this sort of thing was made with tongue inserted firmly in cheek.
