  • Description

    Instructions read: "Mr Operator please! Don't detach this lead - remember the next man. No. 405."

    A graphic representation of a theatrical proscenium arch is featured. Through the means of optical printing female dancers are superimposed one by one on the stage as tiny ghostly figures. They look as though they are doing the Charleston.

    The name "Eve's Film Review" is superimposed over the stage scene and the words: "A Pathe Production. Distributed by First National Pathe Ltd." The girls do a high kick routine swirling their skirts around.

    Note: this is one of several title sequences used for Eve's Film Review. Sometimes Eve's Film Review went by the name of "Eve and Everybody's Film Review" so that the boys wouldn't feel left out! This was presumably the title sequence used for issue 405. Length below is for the title sequence only, not the projectionist instructions.

August 2014 marks 100 years since the start of World War One. To honour this landmark occasion, British Pathé have launched this definitive collection of WW1 films.

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!
