A concise, bright cine-magazine shot on 35mm colour film, Look at Life was produced between 1959-68 by the Special Features Division of the Rank Organisation and screened in their Odeon and Gaumont cinemas – replacing the circuit’s newsreel, ‘Universal News’, which had become largely irrelevant with the advent of television news broadcasts. Marvellously concise and beautifully shot, these colour featurettes presented cinemagoers with myriad aspects of contemporary life in Britain and beyond in the 1960s.
Over 500 Look at Life films were made, offering a treasure trove of high quality footage. Three volumes –on the subjects of transport, the military and scientific innovation – have already been released. This fourth volume presents 42 films on various sporting subjects. Many of the films have remained unseen since their first screening, and topics range from Scotland’s burgeoning winter sports business to the Grand National, from mountaineering on the Matterhorn to the drama of Saturday football fever 1960s style. Essential viewing for sports fans.
