My dad just showed me the 1936 film, Night Mail. A british documentary about trains that deliver mail? How did I not know about this? Documentaries, trains, british accents, and paper mail are 4 of my favorite things!

The film features the excellent WH Auden poem, Night Mail. You can see the whole 24 minute film at this Youtube link. It is so fascinating!
