By the Film Critic

CARDINAL GRIFFIN was among a large audience at the Hammer Theatre in London last week-end when Mr. Alan Turner's latest film showing life in his factory at Spa Mills, Derby, was shown.

It had already been given its premiere in Nottingham. Among the audience there was Bishop Ellis, who speaks the epilogue.

"All the Trimmings" tells the story of the factory, using as its central figure a girl, Maureen O'Sullivan, who goes to work there, later takes an active part in the youth councils of the factory, and is married in the factory chapel with Nuptial Mass.

As those familiar with previous Alan Turner films will know. the factory at Derby is run on Christian principles. Although the directorate are Catholic, and there is a chapel in which Mass is said, most of the 'anployees arc non-Catholics. But many non-Catholics go into the chapel at the end of the working day to say a prayer and many attend the annual Mass of thanksgiving.

"All the Trimmings" shows how, following the model of the famous Harmel factory in France, work need not he the boring, mechanical process which it is so often represented to he, but can be made, through dedication and prayer and a sense of dignity and purposefulness, a part of life -not just a -job."

"All the Trimmings," together with the earlier Alan "Furner films. can be hired for presentation from the factory direct.
