Things to Come

From Google Video:
Also known as "The Hundred Years to Come" and "The Shape of Things to Come ". "Things to Come opens with a near-future forecast of Christmas 1940 in the metropolis of Everytown (obviously London), a city threatened by world war. Pacifist intellectuals, such as John Cabal (Massey), try to turn the tide. But Cabal's efforts go unheeded by the self-interested classes, and war arrives with tanks and aeroplanes and gas bombs." Based on H.G. Wells' novel" The Shape of Things to Come", this film was produced by Alexander Korda, directed by William Cameron Menzies and written by H.G. Wells, 1936.
