Chess, humour and Art
Blackburne or Pillsbury?
Chess scene from ‘The White Cliffs of Dover’ (1944)
Filmed during WWII by Hollywood, mostly as a propaganda film designed to boost morale, this film features a priceless chess scene where two elderly gentlemen argue as school boys over a game of chess. I found this video on Youtube, but the sound has somehow been allowed to waste away. Never the less, it adds comic relief to the overall scene…ENJOY!
