Observing the events in Europe of 1939-40, he wrote bitterly: 'God damn you all. I told you so.'
Each volume in the "BFI Film Classics" series features a brief production history, detailed filmography, notes and bibliography. This text explores the influence of modern art and design in William Cameron Menzie's 1930s vision of the future, "Things to Come".
