  • Description

    £100 cash prize is on offer for this cartoon competition - and other consolation prizes. This is the first of ten cartoons by "Poy" the famous cartoonist. The cartoon represents the title of a well-known song. The competition entrants have to guess the answers to all ten to be in for a chance. "Simply send a postcard to Pathe's, 103 Wardour Street, London W1..."

    Through stop frame animation we see the drawing take shape. It represents a man driving his car into the side of a bank. A gendarme stands close by looking alarmed. A sign on a palm tree reads: Monte Carlo Poy signs the drawing at the bottom. "Did you "get" it?" Six of the original Poy cartoons (framed) are to be awarded as consolation prizes. "Full details on a Poster at this Theatre."

    Note: I "got" it, I "got" it! "The Man Who Broke the Bank at Monte Carlo"! The other ones aren't so easy!

    Safety print only - original decomposed and destroyed.

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!

Over its history, the Pathe cameras filmed a number of people who had committed heinous crimes. So in no particular order, these images show ten faces of truly evil men and women.
