  • Description

    Full title reads: "Hamburg. English Pair Win Dancing Title".

    Hamburg, Germany.

    Various shots of European Professional Championship for ballroom dancing. Lots of couples dancing - all have numbers on their backs. Dances like the Quickstep are performed.

    Shots of Harry Smith-Hampshire and Doreen Casey performing. Good CU of feet moving in time to music. They finish with a flourish. (The voiceover tells us that this British couple were declared the winners by a large margin).

    Selected originals exist for this item - see other records.

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.
