    Item title reads - Fingers!

    Probably filmed at Pathe studios, London.

    M/S as gates go back to show a lady in an oriental setting, she is wearing a heavily jewelled mask which obscures her face. C/U of her fingers which have long jewelled extensions on the end, and look quite lethal! M/S of a hand sketching on a pad, he attaches an extension to one of his fingers and continues to draw the face of a smiling man with it.

    Various shots of a lady using an extension to crochet. Another smoothes her eyelashes and eyebrows with one. M/S as someone sketches on black paper with the nail, then empties water over it, she uses a nail with feather on the end to smooth it out. M/S as a lady paints a picture with the nails and feathers. M/S of model hands showing them off.

    Note: The soundtrack to this item is missing.

The great politician and orator Winston Churchill left behind a sea of humourous quips and discerning quotes. We remember some of his finest epigrams and witty ripostes.
British Pathe captured many extraordinary events on film over its 80 year history but sometimes the cameras were switched on when tragedy struck.

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