Stop-motion cinema ad for Bourn-vita
Advert 1935 5 mins
What seems a charming stop-motion rhapsody for Bourn-vita chocolate reveals some unpleasant racial insensitivity
The first part of this cinema advert is delightfully charming. A troop of eggs are woken by a cockerel and march away in ranks. An accident on route sees the arrival of egg stretcher bearers to carry away the invalid, and two others go AWOL. But things get more troubling when our runaways are joined by two young black boys from a chocolate shop window.
