  • Description

    "Eve always was a high-flyer, but here's a new game for her. A flag and a ring make the "hole". L/S of a group of women in a field standing inside a ring marked out with ribbon. There is a flag in the middle of the ring. Closer shot of the women as a coin is tossed. They throw their arms in the air and three of the women rush off.

    L/S of some of the girls getting their aircraft ready for travel. Nice M/S of the six girls putting on their flying helmets. Dissolve into a C/U of one helping another with her helmet. One of the girls laughs uproariously. M/S of four of the girls standing in a row beside their aircraft. They pretend to be speaking to each other through the little microphones they have attached to their helmets (presumably a way of communicating with each other when they are in the air.) Two of the girls wave at the camera as they climb into their plane. C/U of two other girls waving them off. L/Ss of the plane taking off.

    "Those landing a small flour bag in the ring in the quickest time, win! (But, a Scorer's lot is not a happy one, thinks Reita Nugent!)" L/S of the plane passing over head and over the marked out ring. Various shots of the flour bombs hitting the ground. Faked shot of one of the girls throwing a flour bomb from the 'plane. M/S of girls on the ground getting very excited. "They could call this a game for young "Moth-ers". Low angle shot of the plane passing over head - a Gypsy Moth presumably. M/S of a flour bomb hitting the target. L/S of the plane on the ground. The girls rush up to greet their friends. End shot of four of the girls shaking hands and smiling at the camera.

    Was an item in Eve's Film Review issue number 570.

    Note: Reita Nugent was a dancer - see "Indian Rubber Muscles" EP097.

August 2014 marks 100 years since the start of World War One. To honour this landmark occasion, British Pathé have launched this definitive collection of WW1 films.

10 telling images selected from British Pathé's extensive WWI footage. 'The war to end all wars' was a war without parallel: over 70 million military personnel were involved and over 17 million people died.
WW1
Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
