  • Description

    No title. Rare example of stencil colour fashion item (possibly the only one in the Pathe collection). Badly scratched but beautiful nonetheless.

    A woman in a pink camisole and slip stands and looks at herself in a full length mirror. She has a dark dressing gown which is provocatively slipped off the shoulders and she wears a garter on her right knee. She turns her head towards the camera and lifts up her foot in a sexy pose. Another woman poses against the mirror, this time with her back to the glass she moves her head and pouts. She wears a lime green dress with a blue bow. C/U of the woman's face, the side of her face is reflected in the mirror. C/U of the blue bow and pleated skirt of the dress. Camera tilts down to show her legs and shoes (pale blue). M/S of woman in mauve undergarments which are trimmed with lace. She sits at a vanity table and applies powder to her face with a puff. She has her legs crossed and displays a nice garter. She smiles at the camera and powders her neck. C/U of the pleated fabric of her cami-knickers. C/U of the model's face and hairdo. The camera pans down to show her shoulders and the top of her mauve, lace trimmed camisole. L/S of woman modelling a pink and beige outfit. Pleated mauve fabric is trimmed with beige lace and orange ribbons. Camera tilts down to show the fabrics.

    Note: WOW! Absolutely fantastic stencil colour footage. Very rare in our collection and the models and clothes are fabulous. Lots of sexy, sultry posing in flimsy underwear - excellent. Sadly - very scratched.

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.

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