British civilians were issued gas masks in cardboard boxes and carried them around with the rope attached to the box, or in a small canvas satchel. It was the Germans who used cylindrical canisters for their gas masks as seen in this film. See more »

Fog Equals Atmosphere
30 May 2001 | by abooboo-2See all my reviews

A few chills and some decent atmosphere (atmosphere usually meaning fog) but the modest storyline takes a back seat to war time "rally 'round the troops, boys" sentiment. Seen with that in mind it does possess a certain degree of charm. I like the early shot of the mysterious headless "ghost" wandering through the fog, but it rather quickly becomes apparent that there is a very earth-bound, prosaic explanation. It's all a bit of a mess of course, but quite understandably America and Great Britain had more important things on their mind at the time. Eleanor Parker is porcelain beautiful in one of her early roles.
