Where Alfred Built

1929    11m
This beautifully-shot edition of the longrunning Pathe Pictorial series takes a whistle-stop tour of England's most historic and picturesque beauty spots. Beginning in ancient Lewes on the south coast - where Alfred (the Great) built - the film takes in the impressive Petchworth House, the "gay boating crowds" at Henley-on-Thames, some chocolate-box thatched cottages, and the manicured gardens of Heslington Hall near York. The film goes all out to emphasise the painterly beauty of its locations - look out for a clever framing trick towards the end.
