  • Description

    Full title reads: "Now Pathetone has pleasure in presenting Fred Duprez. The well-known star of screen, stage and radio".

    Pathe Studios, London.

    American comedian does stand up comedy routine. Duprez, wears tailcoat with carnation in lapel and smokes a big cigar. He is on stage set that vaguely resembles a grand looking living room. He tells a long, comic, monologue about a wedding reception with classic gags such as, 'they called it college pudding - it was an education to me'. Other jokes are about fat women falling over etc. Not very funny.

    Note: another Pathetone story from a different issue starts at 01:27:13. It is another, identical version of story - TEDDY BROWN from PT 330 on Pathe Master tape *PM1136*. See separate record for details.

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.
