Quote:
"I resigned, on a matter of principle. I was producer of Canada Carries On and we were producing one two-reeler a month to go into the theatres and he [John Grierson] suddenly wanted us to do two one-reelers. I was absolutely incensed by that. You know, it is a different thing entirely, the shape of a two-reeler as compared to a one-reeler. So I resigned. That was it. That was the spring of 1944. I went down to New York and re-edited British films and made a series of films about what the British Second Army was doing in Europe: to let the Americans know that the British and Canadians were still fighting the war too."
-- Jane Marsh
