Wartime Savings campaign publicity created by film artist Norman McLaren. Symbolic figures, drawn directly on film stock move and dance against a simple painted background. The music is from a recording of “Pinetop Boogie”, played by Albert Ammons. The technique of Vitacolour was used, a three-colour process now obsolete.
