Collect 'Em All #8


Raymond Massey
No. 7 out of 48 issued by Gallaher Tobacco, Virginia House, London & Belfast
"Playing in Things to Come was particularly interesting as the film was experimental, enterprising, and above all significant. It was a magnificent piece of work, and the first of its kind to try and provoke the public to thought. I am proud to have participated in it."

Note that this is the first of these cards where an actor talks not about himself, but about the film, and his description qualifies as accurate when the film was first released.

Things To Come now seems like an artifact of the times, but it is still a highly ambitious, intelligent and sometimes striking film.

I keep hoping someone will do a badly needed restoration. For decades the only prints available have been public domain atrocities.
