Silents in the library: Tell England

Silents in the library: Tell England

Silent Film Festival

1931, 88 mins, with soundtrack

This patriotic yet pacifist account of Winston Churchill’s failed effort to invade Turkey uses much actuality footage and is somewhat experimental in its use of sound. The film poignantly shows how schoolboys wound up leading battalions amid the insanity of trench warfare.
