Pa Puts His Foot Down
Romance blossoms over a discussion of fluid flywheels in this cinema ad for BSA cars, directed by Zoltan Korda.
Advert 1934 16 mins
Don’t you know the best people drive themselves these days? This cinema advert for BSA cars seeks to break down old-fashioned opinions about car ownership. A fuddy-duddy daddy is convinced into swapping his daughter’s hand in marriage for a new motor. The film was produced by London Film Productions and appears to have been directed by Zoltan Korda, one of the leading lights of the British film industry at the time, along with his brother Alexander. A detailed explanation of the Daimler fluid flywheel is slipped into the midst of the love story.
