  • Description

    Titles read: "Dancing mysteries. A Novelty Item. A Living Painting".

    Location of events unknown.

    Within a picture frame we see archive footage of a couple dancing with a black background. The man is dressed like a clown (in snug clothes rather than baggy pants), the woman seems to be wearing a ballerina costume. It looks quite eerie.

    Intertitle: "Movie-marvels - the dance becomes more complicated."

    We see several images of the couple superimposed all over a black background, within the frame.

    Intertitle: "And sometimes the reflection has a way of its own!'"

    Now we see the couple with a reflection shown beneath them. The two images move independently of each other.

On 18 September 2014 Scotland goes to the polls to vote on independence. To mark this and in celebration of all things Scottish, British Pathé has created Scotland: The Heritage Collection.

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

With just days to go before Scotland makes their big decision, Pathe looks at the best of Scotland.
