            Thursday morning saw the screening of Photophone shorts,mainly made in the UK around 1929.
            The afternoon saw the screening of the 1922 Ship's That Pass On The Night.The leading actors must have been the most photogenic and charismatic pair of actors ever.The story reminded me of a Lockwood Grainger weepie.It was dreadful.
