Summary

Corporate film for the Stearine Candle Factory in Gouda, with shots of the building complex and the production process.

The film ends with a shot of workers leaving the factory, which at the time was a familiar fixture of corporate films. This film, made by Willy Mullens in 1918, is illustrative of the many corporate films that Mullens produced for his companies 's-Gravenhaagsche Filmfabriek and Haghe Film.

Royal Stearine Candle Factory in Gouda was one of the few films released by the production company Commerciële en Industriële Film (CIF), which after World War One focused on making corporate films to promote Dutch industries. Haghe Film was to produce the films, while the CIF would bring in the assignments and distribute the films. But little came of these efforts.

After the release of The Royal Stearine Candle Factory in Gouda, the CIF died a quick and quiet death.
