Ultra Swank - Retro Adventures

Look at Life – Taxi! Taxi!

Written by Christopher • August 18th, 2013

Another fun, goofy and kitschy episode of “Look at life” from The Rank Organisation. This one is dated March 1960 at takes a look at London Taxi cabs and how the drivers learn “The Knowledge”.

Look at Life was a regular British series of short documentary films of which over 500 were produced between 1959 and 1968 by the Special Features Division of the Rank Organisation. The films always preceded the main feature film that was being shown in the cinema that week.
