Banks and Credits (film #187 on Prelinger Archive). [Category: Educational]

This is not your usual Coronet film. Instead of an earnest film about squeaky-clean teen problems, it's a dull, narrated film about banks and consumer credit which could have been made by Encyclopedia Brittanica. Of course, this sort of subject matter is just the kind of stuff that makes my eyes glaze over––if you're really into things like finance and economics you might enjoy it. But I doubt it. The big clunky adding machine the bookkeeper uses is kind of cool, though.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ***. Overall Rating: **.
