Things to Come

ok, I just really like this shot from the British 1936 movie "Things to Come". It was an anti-war movie written by H. G. Wells made as England was becoming pretty sure it was going to war. The gummint put the kibosh on the movie's release to quell any anti-war support. Good plan. In the movie the upcoming war lasts decades, engulfs the world & collapses civilisation. It then traces humanity's climb out of the abyss over the next 100 years.
It's in bits & pieces on YouTube, but since the movie was only released decades after it was made & wasn't widely distributed, video tapes & DVDs look really good.
Great Christmas Eve viewing.
So why post it now? Because it's hot muggy & icky out & what we need is a little Christmas, right this very minute, candles in the window & .....
