HC Deb 03 July 1918 vol 107 c1720

asked the Prime Minister whether it was with the consent of the Ministry of Information that a special film called "Hearts of the World" has been produced; what is the cost of the production and how many films have been produced; if these films are lent out free to the various picture theatres or, if not, what charge is made for the loan of them; and in what way the War is helped in this country by the exhibition of films of this description?


I am informed the film entitled "Hearts of the World," which has been exhibited at the instance of the Ministry of Information, was not paid for out of public funds, but by the War Office Cinematograph Committee. It has been exhibited in accordance with arrangements made by that Committee, and has not been lent out free to picture theatres.
