"Murder on the screen" - 1958
This beautiful and hilarious historic "film noir"
originates from the Internet
Archive. It is a classic detective style "murder"
case where the investigator tries to determine the guilty one
for the murder "on the screen", the death of a badly
handled roll of film... Four suspects are interrogated, from the
lab technician who developed the film up to the projectionist
who did the final handling, all of whom claim to be innocent and
claim to have treated the film with utmost care, in the process
teaching the viewer how to properly handle cinematic film. It
is an Eastman Kodak instructional film cast in the form of a true
movie... a brilliant, unusual and beautifully ironic way of educating
the workforce. Enjoy!
