  • Description

    "Just glance at this "make-up" where Ralph Lynn endeavours to fathom the secret signs of the maid (who mistakes him for another) - " M/S of a stage set representing a parlour or sitting room. The maid rushes in and drops the tea things when she sees Ralph Lynn sitting beside the fireplace. She makes some strange hand gestures then runs out of the room. "...and then this one where he figures as the Curate, and smiles, and smiles, and..." C/U of Ralph Lynn dressed as a curate with big teeth. He takes off his hat, nods and makes faces. C/U of him with his big goofy teeth and round glasses. He bounces up and down and makes funny faces.

    Note: "Tons of Money" was a huge success at the Shaftesbury Theatre. It was later made into a film.

    The maid may have been Madge Saunders or Yvonne Arnaud.

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!

British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.
Franz Reichelt
The Duke of Edinburgh has many talents, but it is his unique way with words that often receives the most attention.

Over its history, the Pathe cameras filmed a number of people who had committed heinous crimes. So in no particular order, these images show ten faces of truly evil men and women.

Are you guilty of perpetuating a story regardless of its truth? Here are some classic urban myths which you may not know are false.
Urban Legends
Life before health and safety laws; men worked at huge heights, balancing on girders and cranes all in order to help build the world's tallest skyscrapers.

The images taken from inside Buchenwald Concentration Camp after its Liberation show us what it was like; it tells us what happened and forces us to remember.
