    COUGHS & SNEEZES SPREAD DISEASES - Trailer film.

    A knife throwing act. Cut to MS of the audience. A woman says to her husband 'a dangerous bit of work that'. The man behind them sneezes without covering his nose. The husband angrily turns to him and says 'that's a darn sight more dangerous'. 'What do you mean?' says the sneezer. The man indicates to his wife and various other members of the audience who are shown in CU. The man pulls a few dates from his calendar so that we can jump to a few days into the future. The man, his wife and the audience are all sneezing and suffering from colds. 'See what you've done?' continues the suffering man. Cut back to the audience scene. The man angrily shouts at the sneezer 'And all because you didn't use your blinking handkerchief!'. The audience turn angrily on the sneezer with cries of 'perfectly disgraceful' and 'the man ought to be prosecuted'. An old lady hits him with her umbrella.

    End title: 'Coughs and sneezes spread diseases. Trap the germs in your handkerchief'

    Cataloguers note: Extremely funny film!

    NB: item was originally part of Gazette issue 47/99.
