The Crimson Permanent Assurance

Amidst all of the economic gloom and doom, it’s refreshing to take a somewhat more lighthearted view of banking and high finance…

“And so, heartened by their initial success, the desperate (and reasonably violent) men of the Permanent Assurance… battled on. Until, as the sun sets slowly in the West, the outstanding returns on their bold business venture became apparent. Once proud financial giants lay in ruins… their assets: stripped; their policies: in tatters.”

Thanks to Ian for reminding me of this absolute delight — arguably the most wonderful short feature film ever.
