  • Description

    Titles read: "Easy money! Who'd like to be a lion tamer? Nice easy job, - short hours - short life - er, we mean, life seems short when frisking about with these bits of playfulness -".

    Germany.

    Various shots of a lion tamer inside a cage with numerous lions. He cuddles one of them, then gets another to balance on a barrel and move along. The others take up poses on stands around the cage. Another lion is persuaded to make a gun fire by pulling a string with his teeth; the other lions jump at the blast. Sequence showing the man pushing a lioness on a swing. Some large lion cubs jump out of boxes and are fed milk from bottles. Tiny lion cubs are held up for the camera by the lion tamer; they are very cute and make little growling noises.

    Cataloguer's note: some of this footage could be viewed as degrading to animals.

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

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.
