I Am A Litter Basket... (1959)
7 minutes

... and a hungry litter basket, what's more. Every day, the people who use railway stations drop hundreds of tons of litter all over the place, while me and my mates have to stand by, empty and starving. Until, one day, we get so desperate, we go foraging for ourselves. And what happens? Take a look at this film. It makes me weep to think of it. I nearly gave up all hope, untill - but wait and see!

This heart-cry by Steward McAllister on behalf of the world's litter-baskets is a tiny masterpiece.
