Only one of the five films that Franciszka & Stefan Themerson made together in Warsaw in the 1930s survived the war. This was the lyrical, subtly subversive humoresque, The Adventure of a Good Citizen (1937). It is a fable about freedom from convention, and the right to choose, recurrent themes in their oeuvre.

In 1940s London they made two more films before devoting the rest of their lives to other media. These were Calling Mr Smith (1943), a moving propaganda film − their only venture into colour – and The Eye and the Ear (1944/45), an experiment with images of sound.
