 Living Better Cinematically
The film, though, is mainly designed to show what a carefree adventurous life movie stars like Flynn live, who flies off to his ship on his private pontoon helicopter with only an apple, a banana, and a camera with him, to go on an extended sea voyage.
The film is also very British, with the narrator explaining that many of the design decisions were made specifically to appeal to the British people––this is also a change from the internationalism usually touted at such fairs.
The film is a bit slow-moving in spots, but that’s somehow appropriate, as the entire expedition was agonizingly slow-moving due to lack of oxygen at that altitude.

This title has been filmed by the BLNL from 1845 and it would be desirable for it to complete the film by filming the first 39 years, requiring about 13 reels.
Failing this the film would have to be made using the BLNL set supplemented by the set from the Oxford Local History Library; this set is not in a condition comparable with the Bodleian set, as it lacks the years 1824-1825 and many other issues.
Filming since 1970 has been organised by the publisher which supplies the Somerset County Library with copies at an estimated cost of about £20+ per 100 ft. As the film includes all editions (Blandford edition plus change pages) there are only four to six weeks (i.e.

Among his movie-making innovations were accelerated pacing, conversational and sometimes overlapping dialogue, and previews that gauged audience reaction.
Capra's many other films include Lost Horizon (1937), You Can't Take It With You (1938; Academy Award), Arsenic and Old Lace (1944), State of the Union (1948), A Hole in the Head (1959), and his last, Pocketful of Miracles (1961).
