  • Description

    We see several animal themed items in a lady's bathroom and boudoir.

    Titles read: "Bath and Boudoir. Animals are in favour with fuzzy femininity."

    Location of events unknown - may be France?

    M/S of a girl sitting in a bath with her back to us. She pins up her hair, then reaches for a sponge in the shape of a monkey. Picking up a bar of soap shaped like Bonzo the Dog, she rubs it on the sponge. On a bathroom shelf we see a pottery dog toothbrush holder and a pottery elephant (not sure if this is used for anything in particular!).

    C/U of a powder compact with a fabric cat head on the outside being opened and used at a dressing table. A glamorous brunette in her boudoir is helped on with her garter by her maid. C/U of the garter shows a gold or silver cockerel in the centre of it (this girl is obviously a Pathe employee!). She rests her foot on a plastic pig head cushion, then reclines on her settee to read, plumping up her dog head cushion as she does so.

Animals are often the forgotten army of World War I. They displayed unwavering courage even when exposed to extreme conditions. British Pathé pay tribute to these forgotten warriors.

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
