quota quickies

Low budget, short subjects made in the UK in the 1930s. The Cinematographic Films Bill, passed in April 1927 stipulated that all UK cinemas would have to include a proportion of British films in their programmes. The percentage varied, rising to 20% at one time. The Quota Quickies were generally of a quite low quality but there are some gems hidden in their midst, notably those by Michael Powell.
