  • Description

    Material considered unusable due to nitrate decomposition.

    No title. "Beach-combing on Broadway is the lazy man's newest pastime - New York City." High angle shot of New York street - image almost unviewable and therefore unusable due to nitrate decomposition damage. "Millions of people walk over these subway gratings each day - - some have holes in their pockets." M/S of pedestrians walking down a New York street - again shot probably unusable. "Human scavengers." M/S of two men walking along over the gratings looking down - One of the men points into the grating. "A long pole and a gob of chewing gum are his tools." C/U of the two men who show their equipment to the camera. Man squeezes chewing gum onto the end of his stick. C/U of the pole being lowered through the gratings. C/U of the chewing gum end sticking to something.

    Note: this is a section of a "Walter Futter's Curiosities" film. Probably bought in by Pathe for reuse.

    Picture quality of this film is poor.

    Safety neg only.

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.

Verbal warfare at its best. Here are some of history's greatest retorts and snarling insults. These people certainly didn't mince their words!
