  • Description

    Titles read: "Organising an organ - The versatility of the modern cinema organ with its many sounds and effects is a cause of wonderment to most listeners. How can one instrument seems so many? - you ask. Here, then, is the answer."

    Location of events unknown - could be York Road Organ Works in London.

    Various shots show the processes involved in making a cinema organ. Men plane and drill wood. Molten tin and lead is pressed into a sheet then rolled into a pipe. The 'mouth' is soldered on. Electric wires and cables connect the numerous instruments to the main organ.

    Nice shot of men working on organ consuls in a workshop.

    Commentator says "And now we will hear Sidney Torch at Europe's biggest unit organ", but here the story ends. The missing sequence could have been cut and put into another cinemagazine or compilation.

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