    Note: Probably filmed in the Pathe studio.

    Full titles read: "LANGUAGE OF THE HANDS"

    M/S's of a women's arm (the rest of her body is blacked out). The arms and hands make several strange movements. The commentator says - "Did it ever occur to you how expressive hands can be, I mean just hands without their owners ? Well, here's Sali Lobel, leader of the well known Every Women's Health Movement, handing it to you."

    Lobel demonstrates avaricious hands and the hands of a women who loves dancing. Lobel then demonstrates with the aid of a man's hand (could be Lobel's hand with the sleeve of a man's jacket on ) two hands flirting ! Eventually the man's hand disappears out of view and returns with a ring which he places on the finger of Lobel. The two hands then clasp together.

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!
