Bad eggs and cracking jokes put a frown on Hitler's face in this advert for National Savings

Public Information Filler 1944 1 mins

Overview

This WWII propaganda short encourages audiences to leave Hitler with egg on his face - by buying National Savings Stamps. Wartime expenditure made the government increasingly reliant on the scheme that was collecting up to £5,000,000 a week in 1943. Posters often played more to patriotism and the future of the next generation, but this cinema short goes the humour route with exploding eggs and a frowning Fuhrer.
