  • Description

    Paris, France.

    Opening shots show a blonde woman preening in a mirror - her hairdo is typical of the late '30s / early '40s style with lots of curls on the top of the head, a la Betty Grable. Various shots of the latest hairstyles from Paris. Very glamorous, with curls on top, at the sides and the back and smooth over the crown; some of the styles are rather severe. Male hairdressers fuss over the finishing touches on some hairdos. Most of the models are blonde - must have been the 'in vogue' colour of the time.

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.
